Collin Bullock, Writer

Collin Bullock is a 12th-grade student at South Windsor High School partaking in his first year of being a journalist for The Bobcat Prowl. “I enjoy writing, and wanted to try something new this year”, Bullock outside of Journalism participates in Minds Eye, enjoys listening to an array of music, and studies Norse mythology believing someday he will write a novel on the topic. And upon being asked to define the importance of Journalism he stated, “informing others because many opinions today are forged from the politics they learn from their parents or a biased source.” A very good thing to hear from someone who anticipates becoming a Journalist in his adult life. Bullock continued by describing how taking Journalism has strengthened his writing techniques, "This class has changed me as an observer of all media, written, typed, or recorded, for the better. While I`m watching the news and a story I'm following comes on with a new interview, I get my computer and type out that quote to use for myself."
