Squire welcomes student intern


My name is Ana Olvera and I will be interning at The Rockford Squire until January 2010. I am a 17-year-old senior at Sparta High School. I attended Kenowa Hills High School and lived in Conklin, but moved to Sparta about two-and-a-half years ago.

After graduation I plan on attending the University of North Carolina or Ball State University to major in journalism and minor in psychology. I love journalism because it brings awareness about the ills of our society and lets people know what is going on in the community, state, country, and even the world. I have taken journalism classes, worked on my school’s yearbook, and this year I will take an AP literature class, two psychology classes, a business class, and another journalism class. In the spring I will also be dual-enrolling at Grand Rapids Community College.

While interning at The Rockford Squire, I hope to learn how exactly a newspaper runs and learn some tips on how to become a better writer.

I have two brothers and two sisters; I am the second youngest. We have three dogs and four cats. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, going to the movies, reading, watching football, and anything that has to do with cars. Prior to becoming an intern at The Rockford Squire, I had never really been in Rockford before. But when I first saw the downtown area, I was in awe. Everyone is really friendly and the town has a vintage look with a modern twist. It seems like a beautiful and peaceful place to live.
