Carmel Catholic High School
Megan Brinkman is a junior at Carmel Catholic High School in Mundelein, Illinois. Currently Megan is Editor-In- Chief of Crossroads, her school newspaper, and enjoys working with her school’s literary magazine and youth government club. In addition, Megan is president of kitz4kidz, a 501c3 charity that provides activity kits to pediatric cancer patients. She hopes to pursue a career in print journalism or book publishing and was inspired by all of the amazing reporters she met at WJMC. Megan loved visiting the Capitol buildings and seeing the journalistic process come to life, but her favorite part of the program had to be reflecting at the end of the week on how much she was changed by the people she met, the places she saw, and the lessons she learned.
