The Spartan Oracle.

Deryn Harris
My name is Deryn Harris and I am a senior at Orcutt Academy. I am very proud to call myself the co-editor-in-chief of the Spartan Oracle this year. Sounds fancy, huh? Last year, I was also involved in journalism as a reporter and an editor. A couple years ago I helpedĀ start the journalism club which transformed into the fabulous class it is today.

I think my passion for writing started in the fifth grade when I won the American Flag Essay Contest by writing about my grandfather who served in World War II. Ever since then I have been infected with a writing fever that can never be cured. In my leisure time I enjoy writing romantic short stories and even entire novels. I also love to read. By reading a good book, your world can be magically transformed to a place where anything is possible. I believe reading and writing are great ways to escape the real world and travel into your daydreams (which I do often).

Aside from being a passionate writer, I enjoy the more typical teenage activities. These include playing soccer, hanging out with friends, and procrastinating on my homework. I also love to explore new places and travel across the world. I have been to Europe on four separate occasions and have seen fantastic sights like Irish castles to the Eiffel Tower. My favorite place on this entire planet is the city of Paris, France. My life goal is to learn French, move to Paris, and become a romance novelist living in a small apartment by the Seine.

I am truly excited to see how this second year of the journalism class goes. There are so many stories floating around just waiting to be written! Hopefully journalism can make Orcutt Academy and its community a better place.
