Myah Lear, Media Manager

Hi! I am Myah Lear. I am a senior and I'm the media manager of the AAHS Mountain Echo staff. I have played viola since the fourth grade. After school, I hope to attend college for  journalism. I made honors classes in everything except Algebra. My friends describe me as a caring, geeky, quirky person, and I take all of these as a compliment! I am excited to see what my senior year will bring and to make some new friends throughout my high school career. One of my main hobbies is singing. Most people consider it to be one of my better talents. I also love  anything that has to do with art. I like to paint, take pictures and draw. I also enjoy video games, movies and TV shows. I like to read, even though I don’t do it much. If I had to choose my favorite author it would be Brigid Kemmerer, and my favorite books would be "Letters to the Lost" and "More Than We Can Tell," both by Kemmerer. I look forward to writing for the school newspaper, and getting to know my new fellow staff members!
