Matilda Milner
Following in her older brother’s footsteps was the first thing on Matilda Milner’s mind when she joined the WLHS journalism program. Now it’s the last.

“I’m close with my brother and initially I just wanted to do whatever he was doing,” Milner said. “But now I’m a lot more interested in forging my own path.”

Milner, sophomore, is an award winning journalist with a deep seated interest in politics, opinion writing, and current events.

This summer, Milner spent a week studying journalism at the Next Generation Storytelling program at the University of Oregon on a full ride scholarship.”

“It was an amazing experience, I learned so much. I’m incredibly grateful for the opportunity,” Milner said.

When she isn’t writing, Milner is at dance class, with friends or catching up on schoolwork. She hopes to pursue a career in news writing.

“I don’t know what the future of journalism will look like, what with print becoming less and less common,” Milner said. “I do know that whatever form it takes, I want to be a part of it.”
