Westwood Horizon

Connor Cowman
New year, new biography. As a senior at Westwood High School, this will be my second year on Student Press and my first year as World News Editor. Over the course of this year I hope to encourage those writing stories regarding world news to be as curious as possible, as efficient as can be, and as creative as their hearts desire. My goal is to report on important events happening all around the world and localize them to our small sphere here in Austin in order to be as relevant as possible. Most of all, however, I aim to provide the truth for the readers of this online paper.

Now, let's talk more about me. In the future, I hope to achieve my ultimate goal: becoming an actor in film. One day I wish to work alongside stars such as Tom Hardy, Robert Downey Jr., and Jeff Goldblum, and I hope to appear on the Conan show at least once. Lofty desires, yes, but this is what I will work towards nonetheless. Only time will tell if I am to become successful.

In my free time I enjoy writing, going out with my friends, watching Netflix, and playing video games, interests -- the last three, anyway -- I think are shared by most teenagers. Currently I am not the most exciting person in the world, but someday I hope to be. I love the studies of history and psychology as well, so these are possible degrees I may pursue in the future as well.
