The Smoke Signal

Ashley Jackson
This year, Sophomore Ashley Jackson hopes to do better academically than she has previous years as well as come closer to figuring out her college plan for the future. She’s involved in FFA, Science Olympiad, Student Senate, Pre-Med, and FCCLA as well as plays for a Volleyball travel team based out of Tracy, called Xplosion. Her favorite part of journalism is learning more about her fellow students and seeing things in a new way she never thought of before. One activity Jackson’s looking forward to this year is Warm and Fuzzy week because she loves pajamas and she gets to be warm in Perez’s class. As of right now, her plan is to go to MJC or another Junior College to do her general education before transferring to a four year university. However, this plan has changed four times already, so only time will tell. Jackson wants to change the world by inspiring others through her writing and talking about her experiences because she believes one of the best ways to create change is by learning from others.
