Most high school students are eagerly awaiting the next high school football game or prom. But Tulsa, Okla., native Meisha McDaniel is busy planning for her future.
The 16-year-old junior at Webster Broadcasting and Digital Media Magnet High School writes for the school newspaper, Webster Weekly, and is at the top of her class.
She wants to attend college, followed by sniper school, and then become an agent in the CIA, where she can use both her writing and criminal justice skills with investigations.
“I think investigation is heavily involved in both. I personally enjoy the more critical investigation involved in criminal justice,” McDaniel said.
McDaniel has taken journalism classes but hopes her skills continue to improve.
“In any field I go into, I’m always going to incorporate journalism because I enjoy captivating people, investigating and revealing truth in situations through my writing,” she said.
