Calvin Poe
Hello, my name is Calvin Poe, first time senior and journalist for the Red and White. On a good day, I enjoy some good jazz, sketching some ideas on my sketch pad, and really deciphering the major politics of America and what they mean for me. I chose Journalism as my English class this year because to be honest, I believe that I have a voice that needs to be heard. I have very strong opinions that can and always will be backed up by facts, but also because I want to be able to provide the world with REAL stories that are happening. I am currently debating on joining the baseball team this year since it’s like one of the most safest sports! I plan on becoming an architect when I get older because I have a knack for designing and seeing finished products that nothing else can even compete with. I will say that working in journalism is definitely my second choice because I everyone to be up to date with what’s happening. My favorite genre of music would have to be jazz or anything with a mellow feel to it. My favorite food is Mac and cheese and fried chicken, which I feel like that would be my last meal if I was on death row. The quote that I live by everyday is “even stars need a little bit of darkness to shine”. It tells me that everyone goes through things but it’s things like that that we learn and become better people from. My family is very unique and unorthodox compared to any other by far. We have a highs and lows, but it’s the good times in between that make you stop and think that I am very lucky to be apart of it. I dedicate everything that I do to them because they’ve shaped me into the person I am today. I look forward to growing from my experience here at DDE whether it be good or bad!
