Simi Bleznak is a 16 year old high school student from Wynnewood, Pennsylvania where she lives with her parents and her 13-year-old sister. As part of the Acel Moore High School Journalism Workshop, she hopes to expand her experience and knowledge of journalism.
Her interests outside of writing include math and engineering. Simi also plays basketball and is the goalie on her soccer team. At the Baldwin School, Simi is a part of her school newspaper and uses the darkroom in her school for photography, making this workshop the perfect opportunity for her to sharpen her skills.
Simi has always had a passion for photography. Her first camera was a gift from her parents a couple years ago. Simi says that her parents are the most supportive people in her life and will without a doubt support her pursuing journalism and photography as a possible career choice in the future. In the end, Simi’s main goal is to find the connection between her passion for photography and her interest in journalism.
