Jayden B. grew up loving things like music, sports, cooking, and gaming, and he still loves those things to this day. He also has been working on going viral with his music or going pro on a sports team. He loves collecting shoes, although he doesn’t have the money to build his collection right now, he really does plan on building it up. He has 4 siblings, 3 half sisters and 1 real brother. Although he doesn’t see his mom’s side of the family anymore, he does plan on moving with his dad to stay with him and his side of the family. In his free time he finds things to do like make music, hoop, hang with friends/family, and sleep. Overall Jayden is a pretty chill type of guy, unless you give a reason to be rude but even then it takes a long time to get their (depending on what you did).
Nevaeh L. is a Mountain Range High School student who has a passion for drawing. She may be struggling with her ADHD and it does affect her a bit but she is learning how to overcome her condition and starting to get into her own passion. She also loves Baskin Robbins mint chocolate chip ice cream. She wants to be a commissioned artist.
Benny M. is a nerdy teen with lots of knowledge, whether useful or not. He joined Journalism as a sophomore at Mountain Range High School, because it sounded fun and he wanted to try new things. When he isn’t doing absolutely nothing on the couch even though he has work to do, you can find him curled up with a good book in a hammock chair, painting miniatures in his garage, or doing something related to star wars and/or lightsabers. He enjoys audiobooks of his favorite titles, like The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams, The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien, and The Lightning Thief or Magnus Chase, both by Rick Riordan. He is a theater kid as well as a TSA kid, and after school in fall or spring, he is likely working on the current show’s lights and set. Benny enjoys researching current events in the scientific world, as well as watching Marvel shows and movies and comparing them to the comics. He enjoys captaining his ship The Pyro Hawk in Sea of Thieves with his loyal crew of friends, and participates in the foam-flinging hobby of nerfing when he can.

Venus T. was born and raised in Colorado, being welcomed into the world in mid 2008. She recently celebrated her 15th year of life, as she stepped into her Sophmore year at MRHS. Her freshman year, Mr.Adamsky presented what Journalism was and why we should join it to Mrs.Boehm’s CP English 9 class, and that was when her mind had become set on the course. Venus had been writing stories and narratives since she was in elementary school, one of her earliest academic memories was the “Writer’s Workshop” in her kindergarten class, where her passion for writing had sprouted. In 6th grade, a book titled “Pretend She’s Here” by Luanne Rice had been assigned to her for a reading assignment, and despite the dark aspect of this book, the psychological horror of it all was deeply compelling to her. Her love for horror has followed her since then, in all aspects of media and art. She can often be found in her bed, under a weighted blanket watching Criminal Minds or Shameless, or playing Assassins Creed. Her friends and family mean more to her than anything else in this world, and everyone who knows her is well aware of her bustling social life. Aside from sleeping, writing, reading, or surfing social media, she’ll often apologize for the time she didn’t respond to you due to being out in the mountains, exploring. Follow Venus on Instagram, Tiktok, or add her on Snapchat @healthied , she’s always happy to make new friends.
