Dalin McCully: Feature Reporter
Writing is a creative mechanism to convey emotions and ideas for Dalin McCully, a junior at Michigan City High School. Crafting literature is a unique way for Dalin to express herself, and relate with her readers personally. Her love for writing began in seventh grade when she decided to join newspaper club. She wrote articles that precisely centralized their knowledge on an issue or progressive event at her school. It was a positive way to inform her peers about the importance of being active inside and out of school, but it also boosted her confidence in her literary skills. This propelled her to write at school and non-academically. She began exploring new forms of literature, incorporating alternative forms of diction, and developing persuasive pieces of writing. In her free time she likes to write creative short stories based on events in her life. Not only does this aid in her ability to craft narratives, but it also is a method she uses to output new ideas. Writing is a form of liberation for Dalin. She feels it is an ability that has become undermined by menial tweets, messages, debates, and gossip. Writing has so much more depth. It is a forgotten craft in the eyes of many young people in our generation. This was why she decided to join the Cityzen newspaper. She wants to convey her opinions and ideas in a creative way that will inspire her peers to do the same.
