Brett Pizzi

I’m Brett Pizzi and I love music, jokes, and writing. When I’m not eating, sleeping, or running, I create my own comedic sketches and play guitar. I hope to be able to contribute to what’s going on the world through the newspaper while adding some humor throughout and helping create a website that everyone loves. I look forward to this coming year and being able to bring news to the school that they enjoy just as much as I do.

Hi, I am Johnathan Thompson. I am currently a junior at WHS and I hope to make this year’s Wellington Wave its best ever. I am currently in the Marketing Academy and I’ve been involved in debate. This year, I joined the cross country team as well. Although 99% of my time is mostly spent on schoolwork, I eventually find some to time to spend hanging out with friends, helping others, and playing video games. This is my first year writing for the newspaper and I hope to bring more information to the student mind of old and new readers.

Cagla Koc

Hola, fellow peers. I’m Cagla (Chala), a sophomore who is so thrilled to be writing for the Wave this year. I intend to bring my sense of humor into my writing in hopes of making you laugh and enjoy reading the newspaper, as much as I love writing for it. I have a passion for reading and writing my own little short stories and poetry as well. Fancy that someday I can share them with anyone who (along with me) loves to escape into a whole new world or just has a weakness for a great read. But in the meantime, my goal is to entertain you with my witty articles in the Wave.  Hope you enjoy!

Alex Bonadies

My name is Alex and I’m finally a senior! I’ve attended Wellington for all of high school. I play soccer and run track both in school and out of school. I am 5 feet tall (I embrace my shortness). I have two dogs and a cat. One of my dogs is a Great Dane and when I was little I rode him in the park (no dogs were harmed in the making of my childhood). I despise math but I love science. For college, I want to go to UCF, FAU, or FGCU but I’m not picky. A bad habit of mine is biting my nails, so I currently have almost no nails.

Juliana Diatezua

Evening, I am Juliana Diatezua, high school senior here at Wellington High School. With a background in debate, Literary Magazine, and competitive poetry contests, it only made sense that a new writing endeavor for me would be the newspaper. My interests find themselves in the minor details: typefaces, grammar books, and independent films focused on dialogue -a resume presumably highly suited for Copy Editor. While it is my first year taking part in the Wave, I have nothing but confidence that I can become an active part of the well-respected team.

I’d like to be able to voice my thoughts and opinions more and that is why I joined Newspaper!

Mya Mandell

Hi, the name’s Mya. I’m really outgoing and pretty loud at times. I have an obsession with the beach and British Youtubers. Once I get to know you, I can be quite insane so watch out. I talk to strangers just like my mother always told me not to and I’m always making strange noises for no apparent reason, but enough about my personality. Writing is my passion and I find myself on the computer most of the time just typing pointless stories because it’s what I love doing. This is my second year in newspaper and I couldn’t be more excited.

Madison Dalton

My name is Madison Dalton and I am incredibly honored and excited to be serving as Opinion Editor for the WHS Wave this year.  I am a senior and this is my third year on the staff.  My passions are art and writing. I therefore find it quite convenient that I plan to double-major in literature and painting in college. In addition to being an editor for the Wave, I am the Lieutenant Governor of our local division of Key Club, a volunteer service and leadership organization for high school students.  I am also a captain on the WHS debate team and a member of National Honors Society. In order to relax, I run slowly. (I used to try to run quickly, but stopped, as that was not relaxing.) I hope you enjoy our paper!
