Da’Jai Wesson is an editor for the AHSNeedle. She writes stories that vary from school news to things related to the media. Wesson puts out at least one story a week. Her favorite story so far was the story she wrote about Belle Wickman being TikTok famous because the topic was engaging and relevant to what’s popular with teenagers nowadays. Wesson joined the Atlantic Journalism department because she has always enjoyed writing and believes it is one of her strong suits. One of her favorite things about journalism is how student-driven it is. This way Wesson can work and manage things on her own agenda, but also have Berryhill and the lead editor check in every once in a while. 

Outside of journalism, you can find Wesson hanging out with her friends, spending time with her family and cat, watching Netflix, and going for walks. She has been involved in choir, show choir, fall play crew, spring musical crew, National Honor Society, and float building. In the community, Wesson has babysat, mowed lawns, cleaned houses, and worked at Wal-Mart.
