Hi my name is Roshae Hemmings and I will be this year’s Editor-In-Chief. I joined Norsestar as a sophomore because I had a minute interest in writing, but having been on staff for 3 years, my love for journalism has grown exponentially; I plan to study to study journalism when in college. In addition to journalism, I have a love for martial arts, reality TV, and cooking.ijeoma 2

Hey, my name’s Ijeoma and I’m this years Assistant Editor-in-Chief. One of the biggest reasons I joined newspaper was because I wanted to take my writing skills to new heights. My goal for us this year is to be able to cover more areas of the school than we usually do.sagar 2

My name is Sagar and I’ve been part of the Norsestar team for three years. I work as the “Personality Perfectionist” which means I conduct interviews on students at the end of the week. I joined the newspaper staff because the articles I publish allow me to write on ideas appealing to me rather than sticking to specific topics like we do in English.

Hi! My name is Tanner Boyd, and I am the Writing Wizard for the Norsestar. Although I was given the choice to join after being recommended by Mr. Beck, the reason I followed through and requested Newspaper 1 was to challenge myself. I enjoy writing as well as planning with others, but I also wanted to try my hand at interviews, photography, and on-site journalism. I consider myself a chill dude.
