My name is Matthew Ryan Miramontes, I am 17 years old and I am a rising senior this year at Cornell High School. I am the editor of my school newspaper, an editorial writer for Pittsburgh Youth Media, a radio broadcaster for Youth Express, and someone who takes writing as a passion and job, more than just for fun. I wrote a feature story about one of my favorite places in Pittsburgh, Eide’s Entertainment, which is a four level building dedicated to music, comics, and movies. Music is my biggest love, but Journalism and Writing are a close second.
