Mia Trotter
It’s Friday afternoon and all of the Atlantic student body is rushing to their laptops to open up this week's Eye of the Needle. They thrust the computers out of their bags and fumble with the zippers. They put in their password, wrong they put it in again more carefully and finally get in and race to the all-holy AHS Needle. They wait hastily through the intro and watch as junior Mia Trotter, describes this week's fine arts. 

Trotter is the fine arts anchor for the Needles black team she is accompanied by following staff member Mckenzie Waters, and Chole Davis. Trotter joined journalism because all of her friends were doing it, and heard it was fun. Some of her favorite parts of being on the journalism team are taking pictures and making silly videos with another staff member, Bryer Rose. Although they have only made one so far she is looking forward to making more. In her free time she particles in volleyball, track, cheer, dance, National Honors Society and of course the Eye of The Needle. One of her favorite things to do in her free time is to grab a happy meal from Mcdonalds. Trotter isn't sure of where she wants to go for additional schooling yet but would like to study to be either a teacher or a pediatric therapist.
