Portfolio 2013 Delanee Bogan


Delanee Bogan Danielle Pecorino Hollister California General Manager 4200 Conroy Road Orlando, FL 32839 Dear Danielle Pecorino, I am interested in becoming a model for Hollister California. I am well qualified for this position due to my social skills understanding of the brand, as well as the importance of a model. I am eager to learn more about what being a store model initializes and grasp knowledge with retail. With the communication skills I have mastered being on Boone High School’s newspaper, I will be able to greet each costumer in a friendly way, and know how to respond in a polite manner when dealing with unhappy costumers. Being on staff for three years I have grown comfortable talking to people I have never met, as I often am required to interview them. I can contribute to the Hollister California’s staff because I am very outgoing and always willing to help. If I receive this position, I will be beneficial to Hollister because I am devoted and a hard worker. I have a flexible schedule and I am very motivated in accomplishing tasks both accurately and in a timely manor. I would appreciate an interview so we can discuss face to face how I can contribute to Hollister California. Feel free to contact me at any time. In the meantime, thank you for your consideration. Respectfully yours,

Delanee Bogan

ESSAY

A self-analytical evaluation

I was first introduced to the subject of journalism when my sister, Rachel Bogan told me how much she loved it. Rachel was in yearbook when she went to Boone High School. Everyday she would come home from school and share funny stories that went on in Room 224 and how much she loved being in the class. Hearing all of this on a daily basis, I made up by mind by the end of the 8th grade to pick Journalism 1 as an elective. From there on, I fell in love with the subject of journalism. This year in newspaper, I acquired new skills with Indesign and Photoshop. Last year, I couldn’t design to save my life. I constantly was asking for help and I had no idea what I was doing. This year, I found myself rarely asking for design help. The only time I would ask for help would be when I wanted to hear someone else’s opinion of my design. My production skills were excellent this year. I was always on deadline and I was never the student that Mrs. Burke constantly had to come check on or tell me to do my work. I always got the job done, with no complaints. Multiple times this year I have had to put newspaper before some of my other classes in order to get the job done in a timely manor. Consequently, I would be up late for my other classes but I would always get all seven of my classes work done. Being on newspaper I know how to work on tight deadlines which has helped me in other classes as well. Being a team player is important even with newspaper. I have stayed after school multiple times in order to help the newspaper go to press on time. I would pick up other people on staff ’s slack so that we could finish the paper in a timely manor. I also was more than willing to help other new staffers on their stories on all of our deadlines. This teamwork also showed my dedication to the publication. I was fully dedicated to get the job done no matter what it took. While selling ads, my communication skills have improved. Anyone who knows me knows I am pretty quiet and shy so advertising definitely took me out of my comfort zone. Now, after selling Ads for two years I am not nearly as nervous and I know how to communicate with costumers better. Lastly, this year I learned more about journalism ethics especially dealing with quoting people in the newspaper correctly. Being the Index Editor, it was my job to make sure everyone quoted in the newspaper was quoted correctly so that we were not conveying the wrong message. For example, I caught one of our staffers who was not being ethical about his quotes and stressed the importance of how this would make our publication look if the quote went to press like that. He ended up fixing it but seeing this problem occur, I realized just how important journalism ethics really are. This was a valuable course to take because it taught me that I really have a passion for newspaper and I plan on using the skills I have obtained from it in the future. I will use my writing, design, and communication skills for the rest of my life. I will use these skills in college and I hope to use these skills when I go into the journalism field.


Reflection 1: My most significant piece for this year would be my story “Perfect SAT score opens doors.” This is my favorite piece I have ever written on staff. I love this story because I feel like it was written very well. It was a news story but I also turned it into a feature story. Because feature stories are my greatest strength in newspaper, I found this story very easy to write. The hardest part would have been finding a good time to interview Megan Tracy, because she was always so busy with extracurriculars. While writing this story, I realized that I have the ability to write feature stories quite well. It came almost natural to me writing it. I am also proud of this story because I designed the info graphic myself. I am horrible at designing and I thought it looked pretty good and fit in perfectly with the story. As I first started this story I wasn’t sure how to go about designing it but I feel like it turned out great. What I liked most about this story was the angle I look and the way I portrayed Megan in the story. I feel like I portrayed her in a strong way and really made her achievements stand out. I am extremely proud of the final product.

Perfect SAT score opens doors Megan Tracy scores school’s first 2400

By DELANEE BOGAN There are few students who take the SAT and can say they answered every question correctly. Senior Megan Tracy

is one of these students. Of the 1,647,123 students nationwide who took the SAT in 2011, 384 earned perfect score. That is roughly 0.023 percent of those who took the test. “[When I saw my tests results online] I hit the refresh button on my computer many times. I was not expecting it; I ran

to my dad and he double checked it on his phone,” Tracy said. John Tracy, Megan’s father, had a similar reaction to the results. “It was a mixture between shock and excitement, and it took a while for it to sink in. I had to look at it a couple of times before I believed it,” J. Tracy said.

Tracy prepped for the SAT by taking free practice exams online. She took practice tests on each section and wrote essays. After taking the practice tests, she reviewed everything she got incorrect and studied it. Tracy also said

Americans need fitness regimen Childhood obesity rates climb; military faces national security crisis By HEATHER JANAS and PAULA MORALES America’s obesity rate is rising. Today, 149.3 million Americans ages 20 and up are overweight or obese according to an MSNBC segment titled “War on Weight” from July 10, 2012. According to retired United States Navy Rear Admiral Jamie Barnett, one in four Americans is too obese to join the military. In the MSNBC segment, Barnett said the military loses approximately $60 million on the 1200 first term enlistees who are discharged due to weight related problems. A Men’s Health article titled “The U.S. Military’s Struggle with Overweight Soldiers” published in Nov. 3 2011, says overweight soldiers are more likely to fail boot camp and contribute to 658,000 lost work days in the military a year. Boot camps for the United States Army have been extended for incoming recruits who are overweight or out of shape. The extension of training camps and the shrinking military applicant pool due to rising childhood obesity creates a potential national security threat. Jim Liston, former conditioning coach of the Los Angeles Galaxy soccer team and current conditioning coach of the professional soccer team Chivas USA, says America is becoming an unfit society. He proposes recruits be sent to a two month “mini camp” before training in actual boot camp. This would hopefully end the extension of the training, but it could also be financially costly. “Our bodies are built to move. Exercise every day. Even five minutes per day is enough,” Liston said. Liston also believes physical education classes are lacking in schools. “Physical Education in schools is disappearing. [The solution is putting] good solid physical education programs in every school. Mandate that physical education classes be taught everyday,” Liston said. The U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention says 40 percent of

Seniors “tote” tradition Campus custom continues and changes By KALEY GILBERT What started as a friendly tradition has become a battle between classes. The totem pole tradition has been a senior custom on campus since 1999, when then senior, Daniel Graham, created a totem pole out of PVC pipe with his father. Ever since, the Senior Class Council has decorated the totem pole for its graduating class. Approximately five years ago, seniors added to the tradition. The Junior Class Council can steal the totem pole from the seniors who hide it. “Every year the tradition changes and new rules are added. I’ll hear soand-so talking about a rule, and I’m like, ‘since when did that happen?’0” Senior Class sponsor Sarah Kittrell said. The current unwritten rules of the totem pole tradition include: it cannot be stolen until after homecoming, it has to be at a student’s house that lives in the district, in an open area and it cannot be chained or locked. The totem pole is formally handed down after graduation to the rising seniors. “I think it’s a good idea that someone in district has to have it. I would hate to think that someone from Edgewater

Singer creates ‘Masterpiece’

Student releases single, prepares for future in music

I feel privileged to have been given the gift to sing. I always think ‘Why me?’ Rebecca Gage junior

ßupclose In February 2012, junior Rebecca Gage released “Masterpiece” on iTunes. To see a behind the scenes look of her single scan this QR code with a smartphone.

By DELANEE BOGAN Bright lights shine in her eyes as she steps back, out of breath from hitting her last note perfectly. This is a weekly occurrence for junior Rebecca Gage. Ever since Gage was born she showed an interest in music. Her mother, Michelle Gage knew she had talent when she was growing up. “I always believed she could do anything. I believe her music will impact others around the world,” M. Gage said. Gage has performed multiple events around Orlando. She sings frequently for Fellowship of Christian Athletes huddles, sang last December at City Hall, June at Lake Eola and at several weddings in September. Gage came in second place at the American Idol Experience at Disney in 2012. “I feel privileged to have been given the gift to sing. I always think ‘Why me?’ I don’t deserve to have this gift,” Gage said. In February 2012, Gage released her first single, “Masterpiece.” It is a Christian song that she wrote herself. One can download the song for $0.99 through iTunes. The money she receives from her song goes towards the ministry at her church. “It was so surreal [when ‘Masterpiece’ released on iTunes]. My friends would play it in front of me at school. It was weird hearing my voice come out of their phone,” Gage said. Gage plans to continue writing music

and performing at every opportunity she can. Her genre is a mix between country and blues. She works with vocal coach Danny Flores once a week. “[Gage’s greatest strength] is her willingness to continue to work on her craft and her voice itself. The way she performs on stage is very bold and she never gives up,” Flores said. Since seventh grade, Gage has been singing on a weekly basis at Fellowship Church. She sings on Wednesday nights at Remix, a high school youth group. “I love singing [at Fellowship Church] because I feel like I am fulfilling what I am called to do,” Gage said. M. Gage also sings at Fellowship Church and is Gage’s agent. Her father, Rodney Gage is currently the pastor at Fellowship. He has helped Gage grow by introducing her to people he knows in the music industry. Not only are her parents supportive, but her siblings are also. “I look up to her because of her actions and decisions she makes on a daily basis. It’s really cool how my older sister has a song on iTunes and how she lives out what her song is about,” Ashlyn Gage, sister, said. A. Gage makes watching her sister sing and perform a priority. Gage’s parents also help support her by encouraging her on a day-to-day basis. Gage plans on going to school for music and is unsure of her future career, but she would like it to include music. “[My advice to others who want to sing] is to keep writing everyday and to put your heart and soul on paper. Writing is very important because it’s a way to express yourself,” Gage said.

[ Tracy from, page 1 the College Board SAT Book was very helpful in preparing for the exam. “[My advice to others taking the SAT] would be to definitely do practice tests online for free so then you can have good help timing yourself. It helps [get you ready] in advance so you don’t have to prepare yourself the day of,” Tracy said. After Tracy’s family heard about her perfect score they celebrated her achievement by going to her favorite restaurant, Garibaldi’s, for lunch. “She was uncomfortable telling anyone [about her perfect score] for a while so we didn’t share it with anyone.

credits, she is ranked 20th in her class. “[I manage my time by] not procrastinating. If you get your work done early, you don’t have to worry,” Tracy said. Tracy submitted her application to Yale University. She is interested in linguistics, modern language, literature or foreign language as her major. She also is interested in Carlton College, Amherst College, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Davidson College and the University of Chicago. She is aiming towards Yale. “[Yale] has a very academic reputation and hard classes that I would look forward to. I want to be somewhere different than where I’ve been living for the past 17 years,” Tracy said.

I think she was concerned about how her friends and classmates would view her,” J. Tracy said. Even though she has never needed much motivation from her family, they are always there for her. “Megan doesn’t need much external motivation. Sometimes the best way to motivate her is to tell her she can’t do it,” J. Tracy said. Tracy is on the varsity soccer team, president of Spanish Honor Society, co president of Model UN and a member of National Honor Society. She is also a tutor before and after school in the math lab, writing center and math center. Tracy is enrolled in six advanced placement classes and maintains a 4.0 unweighted GPA. Having 12 AP

Reflection 2: I would consider my story on Alexis the story that still needs work. It seemed like the story didn’t really evolve much and the sketch of Alexis’s art I don’t think portrayed all of her abilities as an artist. If I could redo the design I definitely would. The story itself I think was good considering how short it was but I feel like the way I designed it was a waste of space. This story had so much potential I think I really watered down Alex’s artistic abilities. The final story I feel like it was a mediocre story that didn’t really tell much to the reader or grab their attention. While creating this story I was kind of lost in the designing part and I think it is clear in the final product that I didn’t really have a focus. I learned from this that I need to plan out my designs ahead of time. If I could redo this I would put more of her sketches in a unique was and have more samples of her art to really show her abilities.

CREATE IT. Enrolled in the Sewing Technology and Services Department at Orlando Tech, senior Alexis Burney learns how to convey her ideas into sketches and ultimately into different types of clothing. “I was inspired by the 80s [for this sketch]. I like the use of a 3D element when making a dress. I want it to have shiny texture and a modern shape. It will be futuristic and cute,” Burney said. Burney created a dress similar to this sketch.

By DELANEE BOGAN Designing and manufacturing her own line of clothing is senior Alexis Burney’s long term goal. Enrolled at Orlando Tech in the Sewing Technology and Services Department, she is starting to see her dreams become a reality. “I love [being in the course] because there are so many things to learn. I had no experience in sewing before the class so I have learned a lot,” Burney said. Tiffany Hickman is Burney’s teacher at Orlando Tech in the Sewing and Technology and Services department. “[Burney] is good at making bows, and good with bright colors. She is learning the foundations and hand-eye coordination [skills],” Hickman said. Burney is learning how to create aprons, skirts and shirts. She has also learned how to make different garments and has been selling her products on Etsy.com, an online website that allows one to sell homemade products. Everything she sells is homemade. On Etsy she sells vintage inspired clothes and accessories. Burney’s company name on Etsy is Sweet Sovereign. “Garments are art, and I want people

to see my vision for garments. [I put my garments online because] I want to be critiqued,” Burney said. For homecoming, she made junior Gabriel Houston a silk lavender bow tie to match with his outfit. “I was amazed [after I got my bow tie back]. It was exactly what I wanted and it didn’t have any flaws. I loved it,” Houston said. She also makes other garments for students on campus as well. “I would want Alexis to design my whole wardrobe if she would. She is so creative,” Houston said. Burney likes to design and make costumes rather than fashion. “I like costumes more than fashion because it has more freedom. Fashion is more of a linear type of business, and costumes go all out. I am a very colorful person [so I like creating costumes more],” Burney said. Burney plans to open a boutique to sell her own clothes and garments. The course at Orlando Tech has helped her become closer to achieving her goal. “[I enrolled at Orlando Tech because I was] tired of seeing my designs on paper. I have been an artist for a long time so I was excited to see my work come to life. The program has helped my art become reality,” Burney said.

I am proud of this photo because it is in focus and I like the way it turned out. This photo fills the entire frame and has a center of visual interest. What attracts me to this photo is how amazing the side walk chalk looked. It was really neat taking pictures of artists and their side walk chalk art. I didn’t realize how much talent we have at school. I also like how you can see the concentration in the artists’ face. Saved as: art festival 3-16_bogan20110324032.JPG

I am proud of this photo because I think it is a interesting shot. It fills the entire frame, has depth of field, and also has leading lines. I love how you can see both the artists face and also what she is painting. It was interesting watching her paint a piece like that. What attracts me to this photo is how everything is focused in on her. I also think her art is what draws me to this photo. Saved as: ivy lane20110325000. JPG.jpg


Reflection 4: I was an asset to this years publication in many ways. I helped the new staffers in every way I could. I would offer advice to the new staffers for the best ways to make deadline and I would help them whenever they would ask questions. This year on almost every deadline everyone was behind on their stories. I was an asset to staff because I was never one of the people who was holding the staff back. I always got my stories done in time and I would help Lindsay and Karina whenever I could. I came after school multiple times this year and I would make corrections to ensure that we went to press. I also showed my commitment by not only coming to help after school, but I also always put newspaper first. I would have to stay up later to get other homework done, but newspaper was always my top priority because I knew how it would affect others on staff if I didn’t do what was needed to be done. In the end, all of the work I put into my stories were worth it.


Reflection 5: During this school year I faced the hardship of not getting the position I wanted for my senior year. I applied for the Editor In Chief position and I did not get the job. When I first found out, I was heart broken and I thought I would never be able to walk into Room 224 again. I felt embarrassed and useless to the staff. I have never been so disappointed in myself before. Instead of being down on myself, I decided to look at the situation from a positive perspective. I now look at the situation as a blessing in disguise. I know that God has a plan for me next year and that this position does not define who I am as a person. If a heart breaking situation like this occurs again, I know how to handle it as a mature adult. I take this as a life lesson because I know that this is just one of the hurdles in life I will have to move past. This has taught me how to believe in myself and not be so caught up with what others think of me. Because of my positive outlook, I pushed through my difficult time and I walked into Room 224 with a smile on my face and kept my chin up. Not getting the position I dreamed about since the beginning of my freshman year increased my drive to become successful and achieve my dreams dealing with journalism. It taught me how to handle situations I thought I would never be able to get through.I feel like I handled the situation extremely well especially because of how much I wanted the position. I now know next time that I face a situation where I am to the point of breaking down, that everything will be alright. I know how to hold my head up high because I am proud of who I am and no one can change that.


Reflection 6: My three goals consisted of taking better pictures, improving my writing and being more creative with design. I believe I accomplished every goal I set for myself. When I created this list, I hadn’t taken any photos at all. The rest of the year I had both of my photo days and I also took pictures for softball. My softball pictures came out pretty well. I am proud of those pictures I took at the games. Dealing with writing, I have spent more time writing my stories and making sure I was writing quality stories. I can see a difference in my writing by word choice from the first story I wrote to the most recent. Lastly I have been more creative with design because last issue I actually designed my own alternative copy, which is unusual for me to do because typically I am not the best with design.

The way she performs on stage is very bold and she never gives up,” Flores said. Since seventh grade, Gage has been singing on a weekly basis at Fellowship Church. She sings on Wednesday nights at Remix, a high school youth group. “I love singing [at Fellowship Church] because I feel like I am fulfilling what I am called to do,” Gage said. M. Gage also sings at Fellowship Church and is Gage’s agent. Her father, Rodney Gage is currently the pastor at Fellowship. He has helped Gage grow by introducing her to people he knows in the music industry. Not only are her parents supportive, but her siblings are also. “I look up to her because of her actions and decisions she makes on a daily basis. It’s really cool how my older sister has a song on iTunes and how she lives out what her song is about,” Ashlyn Gage, sister, said. A. Gage makes watching her sister sing and perform a priority. Gage’s parents also help support her by encouraging her on a day-to-day basis. Gage plans on going to school for music and is unsure of her future career, but she would like it to include music. “[My advice to others who want to sing] is to keep writing everyday and to put your heart and soul on paper. Writing is very important because it’s a way to express yourself,” Gage said.

Perfect SAT score opens doors By DELANEE BOGAN There are few students who take the SAT and can say they answered every question correctly. Senior Megan Tracy

is one of these students. Of the 1,647,123 students nationwide who took the SAT in 2011, 384 earned perfect score. That is roughly 0.023 percent of those who took the test. “[When I saw my tests results online] I hit the refresh button on my computer many times. I was not expecting it; I ran

to my dad and he double checked it on his phone,” Tracy said. John Tracy, Megan’s father, had a similar reaction to the results. “It was a mixture between shock and excitement, and it took a while for it to sink in. I had to look at it a couple of times before I believed it,” J. Tracy said.

Tracy prepped for the SAT by taking free practice exams online. She took practice tests on each section and wrote essays. After taking the practice tests, she reviewed everything she got incorrect and studied it. Tracy also said

Americans need fitness regimen Childhood obesity rates climb; military faces national security crisis By HEATHER JANAS and PAULA MORALES America’s obesity rate is rising. Today, 149.3 million Americans ages 20 and up are overweight or obese according to an MSNBC segment titled “War on Weight” from July 10, 2012. According to retired United States Navy Rear Admiral Jamie Barnett, one in four Americans is too obese to join the military. In the MSNBC segment, Barnett said the military loses approximately $60 million on the 1200 first term enlistees who are discharged due to weight related problems. A Men’s Health article titled “The U.S. Military’s Struggle with Overweight Soldiers” published in Nov. 3 2011, says overweight soldiers are more likely to fail boot camp and contribute to 658,000 lost work days in the military a year. Boot camps for the United States Army have been extended for incoming recruits who are overweight or out of shape. The extension of training camps and the shrinking military applicant pool due to rising childhood obesity creates a potential national security threat. Jim Liston, former conditioning coach of the Los Angeles Galaxy soccer team and current conditioning coach of the professional soccer team Chivas USA, says America is becoming an unfit society. He proposes recruits be sent to a two month “mini camp” before training in actual boot camp. This would hopefully end the extension of the training, but it could also be financially costly. “Our bodies are built to move. Exercise every day. Even five minutes per day is enough,” Liston said. Liston also believes physical education classes are lacking in schools. “Physical Education in schools is disappearing. [The solution is putting] good solid physical education programs in every school. Mandate that physical education classes be taught everyday,” Liston said. The U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention says 40 percent of

Seniors “tote” tradition Campus custom continues and changes By KALEY GILBERT What started as a friendly tradition has become a battle between classes. The totem pole tradition has been a senior custom on campus since 1999, when then senior, Daniel Graham, created a totem pole out of PVC pipe with his father. Ever since, the Senior Class Council has decorated the totem pole for its graduating class. Approximately five years ago, seniors added to the tradition. The Junior Class Council can steal the totem pole from the seniors who hide it. “Every year the tradition changes and new rules are added. I’ll hear soand-so talking about a rule, and I’m like, ‘since when did that happen?’0” Senior Class sponsor Sarah Kittrell said. The current unwritten rules of the totem pole tradition include: it cannot be stolen until after homecoming, it has to be at a student’s house that lives in the district, in an open area and it cannot be chained or locked. The totem pole is formally handed down after graduation to the rising seniors. “I think it’s a good idea that someone in district has to have it. I would hate to think that someone from Edgewater

Student releases single, prepares for future in music

I feel privileged to have been given the gift to sing. I always think ‘Why me?’ Rebecca Gage junior

ßupclose In February 2012, junior Rebecca Gage released “Masterpiece” on iTunes. To see a behind the scenes look of her single scan this QR code with a smartphone.

By DELANEE BOGAN Bright lights shine in her eyes as she steps back, out of breath from hitting her last note perfectly. This is a weekly occurrence for junior Rebecca Gage. Ever since Gage was born she showed an interest in music. Her mother, Michelle Gage knew she had talent when she was growing up. “I always believed she could do anything. I believe her music will impact others around the world,” M. Gage said. Gage has performed multiple events around Orlando. She sings frequently for Fellowship of Christian Athletes huddles, sang last December at City Hall, June at Lake Eola and at several weddings in September. Gage came in second place at the American Idol Experience at Disney in 2012. “I feel privileged to have been given the gift to sing. I always think ‘Why me?’ I don’t deserve to have this gift,” Gage said. In February 2012, Gage released her first single, “Masterpiece.” It is a Christian song that she wrote herself. One can download the song for $0.99 through iTunes. The money she receives from her song goes towards the ministry at her church. “It was so surreal [when ‘Masterpiece’ released on iTunes]. My friends would play it in front of me at school. It was weird hearing my voice come out of their phone,” Gage said. Gage plans to continue writing music

and performing at every opportunity she can. Her genre is a mix between country and blues. She works with vocal coach Danny Flores once a week. “[Gage’s greatest strength] is her willingness to continue to work on her craft and her voice itself. The way she performs on stage is very bold and she never gives up,” Flores said. Since seventh grade, Gage has been singing on a weekly basis at Fellowship Church.

Advanced placement students prepare for future By DELANEE BOGAN Using their creativity and art as an outlet for expressing themselves in a unique way is a daily occurrence for advanced placement art students. Students in AP Art Portfolio are required to create a portfolio for the class. When creating a portfolio, the students pick a theme and center all of their art pieces around it. Each individual portfolio is uniquely based on their personality and their style of art. After their portfolio, which they work on all year, is complete, they send in 24 pieces to be graded. “[The best part about being an art teacher] is the constant creativity I’m surrounded by. Each day someone has a creative light bulb go off and it’s neat to be a part of it,” art teacher Nicole Moitoza said. According to Moitoza, her top AP students include junior Blaine Weinmann and senior Ivy Lane. “Blaine has the ability to multi-task and complete assignments in a timely manner, and Ivy has an incredible ability to layer water color,” Moitoza said. According to Moitoza, Weinmann’s strength is time management. Weinmann’s art mostly consists of architectural elements. She is working on exploring with different materials to make her art more abstract. Being in AP art has influenced Weinmann’s decision about her future. “I want to go into structural engineering and having architecture as my concentration helped me figure that out,” Weinmann said. On May 17, Weinmann and her team won first place for the Best Sidewalk Chalk Art at the art festival. It was team member Tyler Chapman’s idea to enter,

and he picked the piece. “I picked The Great Gatsby theme because I wanted to do it, and it fit [because it’s my concentration for AP art],” Chapman said. Both Weinmann and Lane’s art was featured in the art festival. Lane considers herself a compulsive procrastinator. Lane’s art mostly consists of people’s faces. “Art, to me, means an expression of consciousness. Art is making intangible thoughts into tangible art,” Lane said. Not only is Lane able to use her art skills in her AP class, she used her skills in her English class for her romanticism project. She also designs and paints different types of art for her peers. Lane painted her backpack to make it unique. Shortly after painting it, her friend Rachel Pierce asked her to paint hers. From there, more people asked Lane to paint theirs as well. She painted a pattern with flowers and monogrammed Pierce’s backpack. “I love my backpack. It’s so cute. Ivy Lane is a good artist and she is creative,” Pierce said. Like Weinmann, art also influences Lane’s future. “I am studying Environmental Science at the University of Central Florida, but I am considering minoring in art,” Lane said.

CHALK IT. Spending her morning on her team’s chalk art, junior Blaine Weinmann works on perfecting her piece. “I felt pride [in the final product], all the work we put in finally paid off. It was very tedious,” Weinmann said. Their team’s piece represents The Great Gatsby . They won first place for Best Piece.

PAINTING. Making a new piece for her art portfolio, senior Ivy Lane paints a horizontal portrait. “I like [painting] religion inspired pieces and people because I think people are interesting and beautiful,” Lane said. This is one of her pieces inspired by the Book of Ecclesiastes.

Reflection 8: Looking back on my portfolio from last year, I am somewhat embarrassed of it. Looking at other staffers portfolios made me realize how bad mine actually was. My theme was really simple and an easy design. Looking at both my designing and writing skills makes me realize how much I’ve grown since last year. My writing skills have matured and improved and I am actually getting better with designing. Last year all of my stories were the same basic design whereas this year I became more creative with design and came out of my comfort zone. Compared to last year, my theme required more work and you can tell that I put effort into cobbing each bird on the cover and placing each color scheme on each page. Last year I think it maybe took me half an hour to create a simple design of a flower. With design last year I was like a lost puppy dog, and now I am becoming better with designing and that is shown by comparing stories from last years to this years. Dealing with my writing, I feel like last year my writing lacked interest. This year I use more sophisticated words and I made the stories more creative.

[ Tracy from, page 1 the College Board SAT Book was very helpful in preparing for the exam. “[My advice to others taking the SAT] would be to definitely do practice tests online for free so then you can have good help timing yourself. It helps [get you ready] in advance so you don’t have to prepare yourself the day of,” Tracy said. After Tracy’s family heard about her perfect score they celebrated her achievement by going to her favorite restaurant, Garibaldi’s, for lunch. “She was uncomfortable telling anyone [about her perfect score] for a while so we didn’t share it with anyone.

I think she was concerned about how her friends and classmates would view her,” J. Tracy said. Even though she has never needed much motivation from her family, they are always there for her. “Megan doesn’t need much external motivation. Sometimes the best way to motivate her is to tell her she can’t do it,” J. Tracy said. Tracy is on the varsity soccer team, president of Spanish Honor Society, co president of Model UN and a member of National Honor Society. She is also a tutor before and after school in the math lab, writing center and math center. Tracy is enrolled in six advanced placement classes and maintains a 4.0 unweighted GPA. Having 12 AP

credits, she is ranked 20th in her class. “[I manage my time by] not procrastinating. If you get your work done early, you don’t have to worry,” Tracy said. Tracy submitted her application to Yale University. She is interested in linguistics, modern language, literature or foreign language as her major. She also is interested in Carlton College, Amherst College, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Davidson College and the University of Chicago. She is aiming towards Yale. “[Yale] has a very academic reputation and hard classes that I would look forward to. I want to be somewhere different than where I’ve been living for the past 17 years,” Tracy said.

I feel privileged to have been given the gift to sing. I always think ‘Why me?’

By DELANEE BOGAN Bright lights shine in her eyes as she steps back, out of breath from hitting her last note perfectly. This is a weekly occurrence for junior Rebecca Gage. Ever since Gage was born she showed an interest in music. Her mother, Michelle Gage knew she had talent when she was growing up. “I always believed she could do anything. I believe her music will impact others around the world,” M. Gage said. Gage has performed multiple events around Orlando. She sings frequently for Fellowship of Christian Athletes huddles, sang last December at City Hall, June at Lake Eola and at several weddings in September. Gage came in second place at the American Idol Experience at Disney in 2012. “I feel privileged to have been given the gift to sing. I always think ‘Why me?’ I don’t deserve to have this gift,” Gage said. In February 2012, Gage released her first single, “Masterpiece.” It is a Christian song that she wrote herself. One can download the song for $0.99 through iTunes. The money she receives from her song goes towards the ministry at her church. “It was so surreal [when ‘Masterpiece’ released on iTunes]. My friends would play it in front of me at school. It was weird hearing my voice come out of their phone,” Gage said. Gage plans to continue writing music

and performing at every opportunity she can. Her genre is a mix between country and blues. She works with vocal coach Danny Flores once a week. “[Gage’s greatest strength] is her willingness to continue to work on her craft and her voice itself. The way she performs on stage is very bold and she never gives up,” Flores said. Since seventh grade, Gage has been singing on a weekly basis at Fellowship Church. She sings on Wednesday nights at Remix, a high school youth group. “I love singing [at Fellowship Church] because I feel like I am fulfilling what I am called to do,” Gage said. M. Gage also sings at Fellowship Church and is Gage’s agent. Her father, Rodney Gage is currently the pastor at Fellowship. He has helped Gage grow by introducing her to people he knows in the music industry. Not only are her parents supportive, but her siblings are also. “I look up to her because of her actions and decisions she makes on a daily basis. It’s really cool how my older sister has a song on iTunes and how she lives out what her song is about,” Ashlyn Gage, sister, said. A. Gage makes watching her sister sing and perform a priority. Gage’s parents also help support her by encouraging her on a day-to-day basis. Gage plans on going to school for music and is unsure of her future career, but she would like it to include music. “[My advice to others who want to sing] is to keep writing everyday and to put your heart and soul on paper. Writing is very important because it’s a way to express yourself,” Gage said.

to see my vision for garments. [I put my garments online because] I want to be critiqued,” Burney said. For homecoming, she made junior Gabriel Houston a silk lavender bow tie to match with his outfit. “I was amazed [after I got my bow tie back]. It was exactly what I wanted and it didn’t have any flaws. I loved it,” Houston said. She also makes other garments for students on campus as well. “I would want Alexis to design my whole wardrobe if she would. She is so creative,” Houston said. Burney likes to design and make costumes rather than fashion. “I like costumes more than fashion because it has more freedom. Fashion is more of a linear type of business, and costumes go all out. I am a very colorful person [so I like creating costumes more],” Burney said. Burney plans to open a boutique to sell her own clothes and garments. The course at Orlando Tech has helped her become closer to achieving her goal. “[I enrolled at Orlando Tech because I was] tired of seeing my designs on paper. I have been an artist for a long time so I was excited to see my work come to life. The program has helped my art become reality,” Burney said.

Enrolled at Orlando Tech in the Sewing Technology and Services Department, she is starting to see her dreams become a reality. “I love [being in the course] because there are so many things to learn.

From make-up styling for special

By BRIDGETTE NORRIS With a sense of creativity and a knack for entrepreneurship, senior Elisa Castillo spends her spare time hosting photo shoots and making and selling jewelry. “I am an artsy person and enjoy making jewelry. I got involved in photography by just seeing really good pictures and thinking, ‘I want to take pictures like that’,” Castillo said. Using the Internet as her resource, Castillo learned photography tips, how to operate the camera and jewelry making skills. “I got bored and thought [homemade jewelry] looked cool and wanted to try it,” Castillo said. Her jewelry costs $5 for earrings, $7 for rings and key chains and $10 for necklaces and bracelets. Some prices do vary depending on how time consuming and difficult it is to make. “I usually do requests for jewelry. People tell me what they want and I go off that, whether it be the theme or style of jewelry,” Castillo said. Prior to the jewelry making, Castillo began her photography hobby with a small digital camera before upgrading to a Nikon d5000. The camera upgrade comes in handy during Castillo’s photo shoots, like the one with senior Shaffaq Noor. “We were laughing through the whole photo shoot, just joking around and having fun. I didn’t think the pictures would come out as good as they did,” Noor said. Castillo books photo shoots with friends and her friend’s families. She charges for them depending on how long it takes and uploads the pictures on Facebook, www.facebook.com/elisacastillophotography, afterwards. Although right now Castillo’s photography and jewelry are ways to pass time, her dream is to be a professional photographer, but thinks it is not very practical. “I don’t want to rely on waiting to see if I get lucky. Instead, I will find a realistic job to support me and keep photography as a side project, like I do now. Hopefully with time and practice, I am able to make a name for myself,” Castillo said.

and proud of themselves due to their achievements in the weight room,” Smith said. Being involved with students during and after school gives a positive vibe. When Smith gets home from school, the first thing she does is unpack the bike and go for a run. Smith looks forward to her run and tries to run every day. “Sometimes, the run is needed because I’m not feeling positive, other times the run is just amazing because I am feeling positive already,” Smith said. Being active helps Smith be alert during the day, helps her brain work better and makes her feel healthy. The more active she is, the better she feels. “I know the athletes I encounter appreciate my time and efforts and there are so many of my students that show their appreciation to me every day,” Smith said.

There is a rule in Bergan’s house that he is only allowed to play sports if he has A’s and B’s in all of his classes. “Academics are very important; if you don’t have academics you don’t have anything,” Campbell said. It is more important to Campbell for her son to do better in his academics than his athletics. She wants him to do well in school so he will have opportunities that she did not. Due to his love for sports, Bergan keeps his grades up so he is able to play. He plans to continue to play basketball and football throughout high school so he can become a starter for junior varsity and varsity. Although Bergan likes to play basketball, he would prefer to play football in college because he thinks it is more exciting. He plans to achieve his goal of playing a sport in college by playing in high school. He plans to focus on the basics while remaining dedicated and practicing so he can become a better athlete.

By TOMMY MCDONALD After getting home from water polo practice and studying for his five AP classes, junior Israel Miller still has not started practicing for Quiz Bowl. Luckily for Miller, his academic schedule prepares him for the upcoming Florida All County Quiz Bowl Tournament in April. “It would be like studying for the SAT, you can’t really do it. All I do is go in to have fun and show off my stuff,” Miller said. Quiz Bowl is similar to Jeopardy, but with teams. Questions range from science, history, math, English, fine arts and the foreign languages of Spanish and French. Quiz Bowl sponsor Christina Baybay Bykov selected Miller to try out for the All County team in November after the school season concluded. “I was pretty surprised [to make it to the All County Team]. I almost feel like I don’t deserve it, [because] I beat a bunch of seniors that I thought would do better than me,” Miller said. He will now train with the All County team at Winter

Park and West Orange high schools until the state meet in April. Miller suspects that the team will study old released questions from past Quiz Bowl tournaments. The schools third place finish in the Quiz Bowl playoffs displayed Miller’s skill. Even though Miller is a top player, he does not spend any time on his own preparing for the event. “He’s quick. He has good recall. He’s not a timid player, and that’s very good. You can’t doubt yourself. You have to take risks,” Baybay Bykov said Miller and the rest of the Orange County Quiz Bowl team will compete at Disney for four days against other county Quiz Bowl teams. Miller is the only student advancing from Boone’s Quiz Bowl team, an opportunity only six students in Orange

County receive. “It’s not about Boone. I want Orange County to take the State Championship,” Baybay Bykov said.

Student makes All County team

By DELANEE BOGAN Hearing a loud beeping noise, he slowly hits his alarm clock, turning it off, still exhausted from the night before. Staying out late playing basketball and waking up early for his club basketball team practice is not unusual for freshman Alexis Bergan and his busy schedule. “[The best part of being on the freshman team] is that I get to represent Boone and play basketball with my friends. Basketball is a way to get your anger out and a good way to make new friends,” Bergan said. Bergan is the starting shooting guard on the freshman team and was the starting wide receiver on the freshman football team. Practicing basketball for 10 hours a week is helping him improve his skills as well as prepare for next year, “[Through basketball I’ve learned] to be a good leader and my communication skills have improved,” Bergan said. As well as being on the freshman team, Bergan is on the Florida Basketball Volleyball Association Club Team. He joined the FBVA club team in December 2012, but started playing basketball in eighth grade. “I think it’s a good opportunity for him to improve himself in basketball and work with others on the team,” mother, Rachel Campell said. Campbell supports her son by trying to go to all of his basketball games, but can find this difficult because she often

teacher Glenn Listort said. Smith’s 15 minute ride to school gives her an opportunity to think and allows her to clear her head and let go of anything that is bothering her before she gets into her classroom. “I’d like to think I have a good attitude most days. The attitude I come to school with determines how my lesson will go and how my kids will receive the information,” Smith said. When the dismissal bell rings she heads to weightlifting practice. Smith has practice every day. Smith packs up her 1973 Schwinn Varsity bicycle, which used to be her father’s, and rides it to the 700 building. Smith likes to coach weightlifting because she participated in the sport when she attended Boone as a student. “I found it to be such a personally rewarding sport; it is really you against yourself. I loved how it made me feel confident, and now I love watching my athletes feel confident

Castillo also has a page on Facebook advertising her business. “I think that it is awesome that she found something she really enjoys and she could definitely make a career out of it,” Ramos said. Castillo wants the cosmetology business as a side job. She is currently attending John Casablancas Modeling & Career Center where she is learning about etiquette and modeling techniques. Casablancas also offers business classes and teaches participants about how to get a job.

Smith shows that teachers do things other than teach; in this case, biking to school. It gives her additional exercise and saves her money on gas. Currently, she spends an average of $35 or less on gas monthly and reduces wear on her car. “It sets a great example for my students because we are such a car obsessed society, and it’s totally possible to exist without using a car on a daily basis,” Smith said.

Perfect SAT score opens doors Megan Tracy scores school’s first 2400

By DELANEE BOGAN There are few students who take the SAT and can say they answered every question correctly. Senior Megan Tracy

is one of these students. Of the 1,647,123 students nationwide who took the SAT in 2011, 384 earned perfect score. That is roughly 0.023 percent of those who took the test. “[When I saw my tests results online] I hit the refresh button on my computer many times. I was not expecting it; I ran

to my dad and he double checked it on his phone,” Tracy said. John Tracy, Megan’s father, had a similar reaction to the results. “It was a mixture between shock and excitement, and it took a while for it to sink in. I had to look at it a couple of times before I believed it,” J. Tracy said.

Americans need fitness regimen Childhood obesity rates climb; military faces national security crisis By HEATHER JANAS and PAULA MORALES America’s obesity rate is rising. Today, 149.3 million Americans ages 20 and up are overweight or obese according to an MSNBC segment titled “War on Weight” from July 10, 2012. According to retired United States Navy Rear Admiral Jamie Barnett, one in four Americans is too obese to join the military. In the MSNBC segment, Barnett said the military loses approximately $60 million on the 1200 first term enlistees who are discharged due to weight related problems. A Men’s Health article titled “The U.S. Military’s Struggle with Overweight Soldiers” published in Nov. 3 2011, says overweight soldiers are more likely to fail boot camp and contribute to 658,000 lost work days in the military a year. Boot camps for the United States Army have been extended for incoming recruits who are overweight or out of shape. The extension of training camps and the shrinking military applicant pool due to rising childhood obesity creates a potential national security threat. Jim Liston, former conditioning coach of the Los Angeles Galaxy soccer team and current conditioning coach of the professional soccer team Chivas USA, says America is becoming an unfit society. He proposes recruits be sent to a two month “mini camp” before training in actual boot camp. This would hopefully end the extension of the training, but it could also be financially costly. “Our bodies are built to move. Exercise every day. Even five minutes per day is enough,” Liston said. Liston also believes physical education classes are lacking in schools. “Physical Education in schools is disappearing. [The solution is putting] good solid physical education programs in every school. Mandate that physical education classes be taught everyday,” Liston said. The U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention says 40 percent of

Seniors “tote” tradition Campus custom continues and changes By KALEY GILBERT What started as a friendly tradition has become a battle between classes. The totem pole tradition has been a senior custom on campus since 1999, when then senior, Daniel Graham, created a totem pole out of PVC pipe with his father. Ever since, the Senior Class Council has decorated the totem pole for its graduating class. Approximately five years ago, seniors added to the tradition. The Junior Class Council can steal the totem pole from the seniors who hide it. “Every year the tradition changes and new rules are added. I’ll hear soand-so talking about a rule, and I’m like, ‘since when did that happen?’0” Senior Class sponsor Sarah Kittrell said. The current unwritten rules of the totem pole tradition include: it cannot be stolen until after homecoming, it has to be at a student’s house that lives in the district, in an open area and it cannot be chained or locked. The totem pole is formally handed down after graduation to the rising seniors. “I think it’s a good idea that someone in district has to have it. I would hate to think that someone from Edgewater

Student releases single, prepares for future in music

I feel privileged to have been given the gift to sing. I always think ‘Why me?’ Rebecca Gage junior

ßupclose In February 2012, junior Rebecca Gage released “Masterpiece” on iTunes. To see a behind the scenes look of her single scan this QR code with a smartphone.

By DELANEE BOGAN Bright lights shine in her eyes as she steps back, out of breath from hitting her last note perfectly. This is a weekly occurrence for junior Rebecca Gage. Ever since Gage was born she showed an interest in music. Her mother, Michelle Gage knew she had talent when she was growing up. “I always believed she could do anything. I believe her music will impact others around the world,” M. Gage said. Gage has performed multiple events around Orlando. She sings frequently for Fellowship of Christian Athletes huddles, sang last December at City Hall, June at Lake Eola and at several weddings in September. Gage came in second place at the American Idol Experience at Disney in 2012. “I feel privileged to have been given the gift to sing. I always think ‘Why me?’ I don’t deserve to have this gift,” Gage said. In February 2012, Gage released her first single, “Masterpiece.” It is a Christian song that she wrote herself. One can download the song for $0.99 through iTunes. The money she receives from her song goes towards the ministry at her church. “It was so surreal [when ‘Masterpiece’ released on iTunes]. My friends would play it in front of me at school. It was weird hearing my voice come out of their phone,” Gage said. Gage plans to continue writing music

and performing at every opportunity she can. Her genre is a mix between country and blues. She works with vocal coach Danny Flores once a week. “[Gage’s greatest strength] is her willingness to continue to work on her craft and her voice itself. The way she performs on stage is very bold and she never gives up,” Flores said. Since seventh grade, Gage has been singing on a weekly basis at Fellowship Church. She sings on Wednesday nights at Remix, a high school youth group. “I love singing [at Fellowship Church] because I feel like I am fulfilling what I am called to do,” Gage said. M. Gage also sings at Fellowship Church and is Gage’s agent. Her father, Rodney Gage is currently the pastor at Fellowship. He has helped Gage grow by introducing her to people he knows in the music industry. Not only are her parents supportive, but her siblings are also. “I look up to her because of her actions and decisions she makes on a daily basis. It’s really cool how my older sister has a song on iTunes and how she lives out what her song is about,” Ashlyn Gage, sister, said. A. Gage makes watching her sister sing and perform a priority. Gage’s parents also help support her by encouraging her on a day-to-day basis. Gage plans on going to school for music and is unsure of her future career, but she would like it to include music. “[My advice to others who want to sing] is to keep writing everyday and to put your heart and soul on paper. Writing is very important because it’s a way to express yourself,” Gage said.

[ Tracy from, page 1 the College Board SAT Book was very helpful in preparing for the exam. “[My advice to others taking the SAT] would be to definitely do practice tests online for free so then you can have good help timing yourself. It helps [get you ready] in advance so you don’t have to prepare yourself the day of,” Tracy said. After Tracy’s family heard about her perfect score they celebrated her achievement by going to her favorite restaurant, Garibaldi’s, for lunch. “She was uncomfortable telling anyone [about her perfect score] for a while so we didn’t share it with anyone.

credits, she is ranked 20th in her class. “[I manage my time by] not procrastinating. If you get your work done early, you don’t have to worry,” Tracy said. Tracy submitted her application to Yale University. She is interested in linguistics, modern language, literature or foreign language as her major. She also is interested in Carlton College, Amherst College, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Davidson College and the University of Chicago. She is aiming towards Yale. “[Yale] has a very academic reputation and hard classes that I would look forward to. I want to be somewhere different than where I’ve been living for the past 17 years,” Tracy said.

I think she was concerned about how her friends and classmates would view her,” J. Tracy said. Even though she has never needed much motivation from her family, they are always there for her. “Megan doesn’t need much external motivation. Sometimes the best way to motivate her is to tell her she can’t do it,” J. Tracy said. Tracy is on the varsity soccer team, president of Spanish Honor Society, co president of Model UN and a member of National Honor Society. She is also a tutor before and after school in the math lab, writing center and math center. Tracy is enrolled in six advanced placement classes and maintains a 4.0 unweighted GPA. Having 12 AP

Artists express personality Advanced placement students prepare for future By DELANEE BOGAN Using their creativity and art as an outlet for expressing themselves in a unique way is a daily occurrence for advanced placement art students. Students in AP Art Portfolio are required to create a portfolio for the class. When creating a portfolio, the students pick a theme and center all of their art pieces around it. Each individual portfolio is uniquely based on their personality and their style of art. After their portfolio, which they work on all year, is complete, they send in 24 pieces to be graded. “[The best part about being an art teacher] is the constant creativity I’m surrounded by. Each day someone has a creative light bulb go off and it’s neat to be a part of it,” art teacher Nicole Moitoza said. According to Moitoza, her top AP students include junior Blaine Weinmann and senior Ivy Lane. “Blaine has the ability to multi-task and complete assignments in a timely manner, and Ivy has an incredible ability to layer water color,” Moitoza said. According to Moitoza, Weinmann’s strength is time management. Weinmann’s art mostly consists of architectural elements. She is working on exploring with different materials to make her art more abstract. Being in AP art has influenced Weinmann’s decision about her future. “I want to go into structural engineering and having architecture as my concentration helped me figure that out,” Weinmann said. On May 17, Weinmann and her team won first place for the Best Sidewalk Chalk Art at the art festival. It was team member Tyler Chapman’s idea to enter,

and he picked the piece. “I picked The Great Gatsby theme because I wanted to do it, and it fit [because it’s my concentration for AP art],” Chapman said. Both Weinmann and Lane’s art was featured in the art festival. Lane considers herself a compulsive procrastinator. Lane’s art mostly consists of people’s faces. “Art, to me, means an expression of consciousness. Art is making intangible thoughts into tangible art,” Lane said. Not only is Lane able to use her art skills in her AP class, she used her skills in her English class for her romanticism project. She also designs and paints different types of art for her peers. Lane painted her backpack to make it unique. Shortly after painting it, her friend Rachel Pierce asked her to paint hers. From there, more people asked Lane to paint theirs as well. She painted a pattern with flowers and monogrammed Pierce’s backpack. “I love my backpack. It’s so cute. Ivy Lane is a good artist and she is creative,” Pierce said. Like Weinmann, art also influences Lane’s future. “I am studying Environmental Science at the University of Central Florida, but I am considering minoring in art,” Lane said.

CHALK IT. Spending her morning on her team’s chalk art, junior Blaine Weinmann works on perfecting her piece. “I felt pride [in the final product], all the work we put in finally paid off. It was very tedious,” Weinmann said. Their team’s piece represents The Great Gatsby . They won first place for Best Piece.
