Amari Olds, 21, is working at Wal-Mart and KFC, but she aspires to be a journalist. Olds discovered her passion for writing her sophomore year at Messmer High School when she had the opportunity to take a broadcast media class and go on field trips to the Channel 4 news station and the Journal Sentinel. She also contributed to her school paper and newscast. She hopes to one day attend UWM to study journalism.
