The Tower

Sierra Weaver
Sierra Weaver, an Adams sophomore, is in her second year of writing for The Tower. She greatly enjoyed her experience last year while writing and meeting new people. In addition to writing for The Tower, She also participates in Mock Trial and Model United Nations. Mock Trial requires a large amount of writing and looking at situations from two sides, so she is able to really work and focus on those skills. Model UN is about representing a country, and putting one's own personal beliefs aside to better a larger group. She finds this helpful for writing for The Tower, as it has reminded her to avoid bias and work for a larger project that will benefit the school. Both of these activities have helped her look at situations from multiple sides, as this is an important quality to any sort of writing, particularly journalism. In addition, they have helped with her public speaking skills, which will aid her in interviews. Throughout this year, she hopes to continue to work on these skills and become a better writer. She also plans to continue being part of The Tower throughout the rest of her time at John Adams High School.
