Hi! My name is Jenna Wayne, and I am a Junior taking journalism for the third time. I decided to do journalism again because I enjoyed it so much last year! I love interviewing people, writing articles, taking pictures, etc. I had such a fun time making stories for the PawPrint that I could not pass up the opportunity to do it again. I cannot wait to create more fun articles this year.
