The Owl

Akash Woods, Staff writer

Akash Woods decided to join the Owl to learn what it’s like to be a journalist. He wanted to learn how to write an engaging story with a headline that pulled people in. He also wanted to improve his research skills as well as his interview skills. Akash enjoys many sports, including basketball, tennis, and biking. You can often find him engaging in one of these activities, usually with friends. He is not a very big fan of winter sports, however, due to an unfortunate history with both skiing and sledding. This means during the winter you are more likely to find him inside, with a mug of hot chocolate and his favorite food: purple grapes.
