Hi! My name is Maddie Sheifer and I’m a senior this year at Oakton. This is my second year on the Oakton Outlook staff. Last year I served as a staff writer and I am excited to be this year’s Artwork Editor. This means I am responsible for the issues' photography, design layout, and my personal favorite-creating the front cover. My favorite sections to write for are Feature and A&E. My favorite subjects at school are English, Biology, and Journalism (obviously). After this year, I plan to major in English and Mass Communication wherever I end up in college. My favorite city in the world is Boston, and my dream job is being a reporter for The Boston Globe. When I grow up I’d like to either be a journalist or a high school English teacher. In addition to writing for the Outlook, I’m also a member of Oakton Swim and Dive. I've been swimming since I was 7, but my experiences swimming with Oakton are by far my favorite. In my free time I like to listen to music, read, and take photos for fun. I’m looking forward to a great year with the Outlook and can’t wait to see what our issues have in store!
