Angelina Hicks, Managing Editor

During my third school year on the El Cid staff, this time honored with the title of Managing Editor, I plan to spend every moment not only striving to improve myself academically and intellectually, but also to strengthen my newfound leadership skills as I teach my classmates the art of journalism. After spending two years as Copy Editor and News Editor, respectively, my writing quality and confidence have skyrocketed. Before I realized it, my heart found its place among the El Cid staff, a group of students I can truly call my second family. Outside the newsroom, I spend my time playing softball and field hockey, bullet-journalling, scrapbooking, and watching endless hours of Netflix. While writing about various campus events and individuals and learning methods of interviewing during the past years, I gained life lessons impossible to attain anywhere else. I cannot wait to use my passion and hard work to expand the journalism program during my last year at Cathedral Catholic High School.
