Driven by her love for reading and writing, Michelle Yin, a freshman at Malden High School, joined the Malden Blue and Gold to experience how newspaper stories are found, written, revised and edited, and finally published for everyone to see. As a writer, she likes to create her own short stories. As a reader, her genre of choice is realistic fiction, with her favorite author being James Patterson. Michelle also displays an interest in giving back to her community. She has become involved in Malden High School's Key Club. In the future, she hopes to help uphold the law as a lawyer. When Michelle isn't writing stories, wolfing down books, or volunteering, she is a full-time Netflix surfer. Her favorite show to binge on is Supernatural. Of the two main characters, Dean and Jess, Michelle admits that she most prefers Dean. Michelle hopes that as she utilizes her reading and writing skills throughout the year she will become an important asset to the Blue and Gold.
