Youth Roving Reporters 2017/2018


Aashna MacLennan

I am a sophomore at  Oregon Episcopal School in Portland, Oregon. My passions include singing in the Oregon Repertory Singers Youth Choir and dancing Bharatanatyam, a classical Indian dance, at the Natya Leela Dance Academy.

Arden Butterfield

I’ve played cello for eight years, and have been composing music for almost as long. I like filmmaking, math, local history, and the joy of learning a new skill.


Emma Clark

I am a freshman at Catlin Gabel School who enjoys competitive swimming, participating in plays, binge-watching Netflix and eating bacon. I have also been playing classical piano for nine years and have finally felt comfortable at performing. All of that hard work must’ve paid off since I have won a few awards at local music festivals and competitions.

Madeline Wiggins

In my studies, I attend West Salem High School and perform in the school’s Symphony and Chamber Orchestras. Along with my passion for music, I also enjoy the more mechanistic classes provided, such as math, government, science and writing courses. However, I also make time to spend with friends and family and, perhaps, play water polo. I am excited to begin creating a name and image for myself and my writing.


Shania Watts

I am a senior from Woodland, WA currently enrolled in the Running Start program at Clark College. I’m an accomplished violist, as well as a very active participant in musical events around the Vancouver, Portland area. One day, I hope to become a professional musician, sharing my love of music with the world.

Sophia Suhler

I’m a sophomore at Lake Oswego High School and I play in the Jazz band and Sing in the choir. Outside of school I participate in MYS and PYJO. When I’m not playing music or doing homework I can be found playing with my dogs or drawling. And I’m thrilled about this opportunity as a way to work on my writing and an outlet to express my creativity and unique writing style.
