  • What is your position on “The Hiller”?

I am a staff writer.

I have been on staff for one year, and I joined because I always read the articles last year and thought it looked really fun to be a part of.

  • What has been your favorite article you’ve written and why?

My favorite article has been my article on rating pizza restaurants in Washington titled “Journeying through slices of Washington.” It let me get out in the community and it was really fun to try all of the pizzas.

It’s hard to say since this is only my first year. But I’ve had my fair share of red ink so probably at least one whole pen.

Mrs. O’Lare is extremely calm all the time, even when there are problems. She makes me want to do better and I just want to make her proud because I really do value her opinion.

Anything buffalo chicken related. Wraps, strombolis, mac and cheese, you name it, I’m buying on buffalo chicken days.
