John Campbell, Staff Reporter

John Campbell (He/Him) is a 9th grader and proud American who enjoys hunting, fishing, and loves camping. Campbell has grown up in Oregon all his life and loves the outdoors, things like hiking, hunting, and fishing.  He is very passionate about reconnecting with nature and being outdoors as many did in the past. “I just love getting your hands dirty and gutting a fish, y’know?”

 Campbell has always loved writing stories and drawing comics, ever since he was young. His inspiration is drawn from many TV shows, as he began to fall in love with the storylines from popular shows like Adventure Time. But instead of a cartoonist or animator, Campbell plans on being a police officer when he gets out of school, “I want to serve the community,” says Campbell.

 When it comes to his heritage, he says, “My mother's side is everything under the sun.” On his father's side, his great-grandfather brought his entire family from Honduras to New York by boat. Despite the hardships, Campbell is aware of his lack of immersion in his culture. “ I visited my grandpa in New York a few years ago and… what did we do…we ate Chinese food!”  

Campbell is a very kind and funny person to be around, so don't be afraid to say hello if you see him in the halls!
