My name is Malia Cashel and I am a senior at Sonoma Valley High School. This is my third year working for our school's newspaper, The Dragon's Tale, and I could not be more grateful for my decision to do so. I have a great passion for capturing authentic moments through photography and am glad that I can use this skill to inform and entertain the student body. Working for the Dragon's Tale, a class that closely resembles a real-world workplace, I have been taught so much. Journalism has opened my eyes to the worlds of news and design, and helped me see the importance of the stories told. After writing opinion pieces, feature articles, taking photos of many sports and events, and designing page layouts, I have been able to find what I am drawn to the most. I enjoy taking photos and designing pages more than other aspects of journalism, and I have learned so much about using InDesign, Photoshop, and digitizing the newspaper by designing and updating the website - http://sonomavalleydragonstale.weebly.com.
