Rachel Sieczkowski, only 16, is always the leader with her siblings, she is the
eldest of 3 sisters and has always been interested in journalism, rocketing in 7th grade.
Sieczkowski said, “nothing seemed constant in my entire life,” before she found the teen
news panel in the paper. From then on, journalism was in her future.
The NSLC invitation and acceptance deeply excited Sieczkowski. Her first words
after getting into the Journalism program were, “Oh my gosh! Yes!” The reason
Sieczkowski is so interested in journalism is that writers have the ability to choose the
news, control the facts, and speak the truth. Sieczkowski aspires to share her ideas
When asked what Sieczkowski saw herself doing in the 5 years, she immediately

writing later in life whether I’m a journalist or not.” She will continue to write and
continue to excel.
