Bella Paredes
I’m Bella Paredes and I am the Editor-in-Chief of the Plainfield South Paw Print. I joined Journalism during my sophomore year, after 7 weeks of summer school that I took just so I would be able to fit this class into my schedule.

The summer before my junior year I attended a two-week journalism program at Eastern Illinois University and when I returned to school I became the editor-in-chief of the newspaper. In my junior year, the team went to sectionals and I placed in newspaper design, which resulted in me going to state, along with six other staff members.

During this past summer, I spent five weeks at Northwestern University studying journalism with 80 other students from around the world. I return to South this year as the editor-in-chief and hope to continue to make the Paw Print a great publication.

Outside of journalism, I am participating in an array of after-school activities, including Model UN, student council, crew, NHS, and Spanish Honors Society.
