Katie Berrell is an avid Netflix lover who has been in journalism for two years.  On top of her love for Netflix, Katie plays volleyball, writes for the high school newspaper and participates in Youth In Action.

Katie took Journalism I as a sophomore and Journalism II as a junior.  She enjoyed both the classes because they were different than other classes.

“I've never done journalistic writing before and I like doing work for the paper,” Katie said.  “I like putting it all together to see the final product.”

Her favorite type of article to write is a hard hitting news article.  She also enjoys doing  photo slideshows with her amazing photos.

This year Katie wrote an article about the mentor program at Orono which was one of her favorite articles she has written.

The mentor program is a new idea at the school and Katie’s article helped get the word out to students about it and how they could get involved for next year.

Outside of the journalism world Katie enjoys shopping at Francesca's for jewelry and is “obsessed” with G.A.P.

Her favorite foods include: blue cheese burgers. Pesto from Noodles and Company and Buffalo Wild Wings.

If Katie were stranded on a deserted island and could only bring one person, she would bring Beyonce.
