Alyssa (Aly) Brockob, is a lead editor and author for AHS Needle. Brockob, along with Dani Mathisen, is in charge of the Senior Spotlight Magazine. They both write around 20 stories for the Senior Spotlight and figure out designs. Brockob has enjoyed her previous years in journalism. “She (Ms. Berryhill) has couches, couches are nice… it’s nice, there is a lot of freedom to it basically on your own schedule,” Brockob states. Brockob’s ideas for her future change frequently but she aspires to become a writer and travel. She writes short stories and poetry in her free time, even entering, and winning, a few contests. Brockob also plays string bass and electric bass. Her friends would describe her as creative, a good listener and empathetic. Some pieces Brockob has enjoyed writing for the Needle include, AHS Takes on Climate Change and many senior profiles. Brockob’s goals are to make a lot of changes to the Senior Magazine to make it the best looking AHS has had so far. Brockob is proud of the journalism department for its bravery to ask controversial questions to put out more difficult stories.
