Melissa Krainer, Reporter

Hi! My name is Melissa Krainer, and this is my first year reporting for the Mountain Echo. I am very excited to be a part of the staff this year as a freshman! Previously, I wrote stories for the junior high newspaper. I have always been passionate about writing, and I can't wait to help report on school events this year. In my free time, you might find me crocheting, reading, playing the violin or working on math puzzles. I speak both English and German fluently. This is one of my favorite quotes:

"Be the change you wish to see in the world."

- Mahatma Gandhi
