Grace Yi, Staff Writer

I am a junior, an ambitious photographer and a second year staff writer for The Highlander and Scot Scoop. I focused on my passion for photojournalism this summer by working as a intern for the San Mateo Daily Journal. My favorite thing about being a photographer is having people “appreciate and admire her work.” When I'm not busy snapping photographs of students with my Canon, I am a competitive water polo player, swimmer, and love to dance Korean traditional dance.
