Meet Lily Madeline Ockerman

By June Johnson

Lily Madeline Ockerman is a new journalism student who is in ninth grade. After moving from Michigan to North Carolina at age four, she came to Kate Collins Middle School in eighth grade, at age thirteen. “Moving is easier when you’re younger because you haven’t made many close friends,” she explained. Lily is taking journalism because she believes it will improve her writing skills. She is also interested in the photography and graphic design aspects of the class. Lily also takes honors classes, such as geometry. She thinks they’re  beneficial for students because they’re more involved. Lily likes to read and draw, and take pictures.

Although she didn't make it into photography class, she enjoys it on her own time and is considering entering competitions.
