My name is Carissa Lewis. I am a co-editor-in-chief for The Granite Bay Gazette. I will be posting published articles, newspaper design, digital artwork and photography.

My interest in journalism started during my freshman year of high school. Since then, my passion for writing has developed, and I have won awards in writing, editing and photography. I have been a part of The Gazette staff since August 2014 and have had experience as a staff writer, Feature editor, Photo editor and, finally, co-editor-in-chief.

While journalism is my main focus, I also love writing stories and taking photography as a creative hobby. Wherever I go, my computer and camera come with me. While journalism has granted me several opportunities to take action shots, particularly in sports, I especially love portrait photography.

I look forward to advancing in my journalistic career. Feel free to explore my site and view both my professional and informal creations.
