Senior Da’Jai Wesson is a lead editor for the AHSneedle.com and writes a wide variety of news stories. Wesson’s road to being a journalist started when she took an English class with Allison Berryhill. “I liked her as a teacher and I liked writing, so I wanted to continue writing with her,” said Wesson. 

To earn the Best of School Newspaper Online award is a major achievement, one that Wesson won. Wesson’s favorite story that she wrote about was her profile on Steve Anderson. Wesson said, “I had to go out to the bus barn and ended up winning the Best of SNO award.” 

Outside of writing stories for journalism, Wesson enjoys reading, choir and show choir, talking walks, and working on the play and musical. “I like helping and seeing what is going on behind the scenes,” said Wesson. She is also a part of the National Honors Society and MVP mentoring program. 

Wesson said she has a lot of really strong women in her life, but the one she looks up to the most is her mom. If Wesson had to describe herself, she would say that she is nice and caring.
