Kate Harwood is currently a senior at Stone Bridge High School in Ashburn, Virginia. At Stone Bridge, Kate is involved in her school’s Student Council Association, Choir Department, Theatre Department, National Honors Society, and Tri-M Honors Society and is the Features Editor of The Bulldog Tribune (school newspaper). After high school, Kate hopes to pursue a degree in communications, journalism, or public policy. WJMC 2017 was an unforgettable experience and taught Kate to trust her instinct, the importance of making connections, to constantly be developing her craft, and her new-found love of journalism. WJMC helped Kate discover her career aspirations and what it means to be a true journalist. Her favorite part of the Conference was experiencing D.C. through a journalist’s point of view. She is excited and honored to serve on the WJMC 2018 Advisory Board and can’t wait to help shape WJMC 2018!
