Willow Burkholder, Staff Writer - The Mustang Messenger

Willow Burkholder is a sophomore who has a passion for writing. Not only does she love writing but she also finds her peace through music. Her future is not something she has tried to plan out quite yet, but she has plenty of time.

Music is something that a lot of people find peace in and could talk about for hours and she definitely is a part of that crowd. The musical group “Green Day” is her absolute favorite band to ever exist. This passion helps her have something to write about and is her most confident topic. Burkholder joined journalism class because she thought it would give her a chance to write and learn how to become a better writer throughout her high school years.

She has been in school for basically her whole life (10 grades if we're counting), but her English teacher this year has most inspired her. Mrs. Harner helped her a lot with actually having the willingness and want to be a good writer who had a passion for it. The school's newspaper is full of kids who just love to write and love journalism to the fullest. Newspaper gives aspiring writers an opportunity to write about their opinions and prove to be people they are good at what they do. Burkholder has shown interest in this group because she thinks it will be a good opportunity for her and will continue to do her research on it.

Some people get their stress out by driving or listening to music or find their zen in being around the people they love. However, for Burkholder, writing is her source of finding her serene state of mind. Sitting there and putting words on a page is something that helps her get all the weight of school, life, family, friends, work, etc off of her shoulders. As she writes word after word it turns into this beautiful piece of art that people enjoy reading. 

For hobbies, she loves to read, which is her outlet for most things. She loves to dig into a good horror book when she is bored and has nothing to do. Her best friends Elizabeth Young, Grace Samples, and Nova Carter could tell you so. Overall Willow Burkholder is a book-loving girl who loves to write down any of her thought and ideas to turn them into great pieces people can read.
