Jalil Humphrey, Staff Writer

On the day of February 1st, 2006, Jalil Humphrey was born in Saginaw Michigan. He was raised there for the early years of his life, moving out of the midwestern state under the searing sun rays of Arizona. 

For 9 years he has lived in Arizona and has moved with his family a total of 3 times throughout the state. Now he finds himself in the communities of Litchfield and Verrado High School. 

Prior to the move to Litchfield, he lived in the city of Avondale for 6 years. During the last 2 of those years, the Covid era struck. With nothing to do, writing began to strike a chord within the teen and since then, it would stick and become both a hobby and passion in the form of poems. He even won a poetry contest held during that same time of literature discovery.

After this he tried out Cross Country and Track for La Joya High School, trying to find footing and explore new things including sports. This time is no different. 

His very first year of Verrado was him trying to navigate through their Junior year. Mid-year he suddenly found himself trying out for the musical Jekyll And Hyde, even being cast in a named role.

Now he is a Senior trying to finish off his final year of high school and graduate on time while also being engaged with the school. In his free time besides writing and working, he listens to music, his favorite artist being Kanye West. He also plays games like Super Smash Bros and watches anime like One Piece or Hunter X Hunter.    

 

Stepping into journalism, he hopes to expand his writing abilities by creating engaging stories occurring around him.
