The Spartan Speaks

Nina Johnson
Hello! My name is Nina Johnson, and I’m a senior at Orono. This is my fourth year being on The Spartan Speaks, now as one of the Editors in Chief.  I have always had a love for writing, and journalism offers me a platform to conscientiously contribute to the current happenings of both our local and global community. Journalism’s role in our world is continuously increasing, making honest reporting that much more important. I'm passionate about politics and current events, so I mainly write news and features articles and I plan on taking my love for English and journalism into college with me next year.  When I'm not writing for The Spartan Speaks, I'm involved in Youth in Government and a leader of Youth in Action.  Outside of school, I'm usually reading or listening to Fleetwood Mac.
