Dowling Catholic High School
West Des Moines, IA
Kirby Power attended WJMC of summer 2016. Her favorite part of the conference was how it was so easy to make new friends and learning so much about journalism as well as expanding her perspective on the world. She lives in West Des Moines, IA, and attends Dowling Catholic High School but has also lived in Tennessee, Louisiana, and Nevada. She enjoys reading and writing for her school newspaper, the Dowling Catholic Post. She is a member of the cross country, track, and academic decathlon teams at her school, as well as a few clubs. Kirby has known she has wanted to write for the rest of her life since her 7th grade language arts class, and attending WJMC was where she learned to love writing and journalism even more. She plans to major in journalism and communications in college but has no idea where!
