This is Joanna Mendoza, a Journalism staff writer who is also a junior! She enjoys writing stories for Journalism so all the SOAR Stars can stay up to date on the relevant and important events! She loves to watch Tik Tok in her freetime along with cuddling with her dog. She comes from a family of 6 that's helped her grow so much as a person. One accomplishment she takes pride in is making it this far and not giving up, she encourages everyone to never give up and always keep going!
