Trinity Kays, Staff Reporter

Hi guys my name is Trinity Kays. I’m a junior and this is my second year in the Lamplighter program. However due to quarantine this is my first year as an actual staff reporter and I’m really excited to share this journey with you all. I’ve always loved writing and journalism and am happy to finally be able to have an outlet for my passion. I’m a varsity player on Dunbar’s women's lacrosse team and am also a member of TSA! I’m looking forward to sharing a bit of myself through my writing and I hope y'all enjoy it!
