Sarah Chung, Co-Editor-in-Chief

Not only is Sarah Chung a piano player, National Merit semi-finalist, tennis player and snowboarder, but she is a phenomenal writer and dedicated journalist.

“Journalism is my favorite class, and I’m not just saying that because Ms. Breyne (Journalism Adviser) is standing right next to me,” Sarah Chung, senior, said. She had no idea that after joining the eighth grade journalism class at Athey Creek Middle School that she would be co-editor-in-chief of the West Linn High School Amplifier.

As a senior enjoying the early release sixth period, she is starting to think about college. “I’m really excited, but also scared because it is almost over,” Chung said. “I am definitely going to make the most of this year.”

Chung is interested in attending the University of Washington, University of North Carolina, Duke or the University of San Francisco to go into medical school.

After going on a mission trip to Nicaragua, her lasting impressions of the doctors and how they were able to help the people in the country stuck with her. She now dreams of practicing medicine and going on frequent trips to help people in need, like the ones she saw in Nicaragua.

Outside of her journalism life, Sarah Chung lives with her parents, Jonathan and Grace, her fourth grade brother, Nathan, and her Maltese, Mickey. She plays varsity tennis and enjoys driving around with her friends in one of their Volkswagen Bugs. She continues to play the piano, which she began when she was six years old.

Chung was born in California on Groundhog’s Day, Feb. 2, and she moved to Oregon when she was only a couple months old.

What Chung appreciates about Oregon is the seasonal changes.  “They must be distinct,” Chung said.  Winter is her favorite season because all the “good” things are in it.  Christmas, snowboards and snow.  She loves to go to the mountain and snowboard with her friends during winter.

Chung is looking forward to her fourth year on the Amplifier providing great journalism to the students, staff and the community of West Linn.
