The Production

Jean Reyes

Most days, Jean Reyes can be spotted easily in her bright red jacket and vibrant teal backpack, usually walking briskly from one place to another. Although writing and English are the foci for her high school career, she prides herself on her competency and passion for mathematics, psychology, and performance piano. After playing the clarinet for five years and the piano for over a decade, Reyes discovered the magic of writing pieces other than essays. She says, “The beautiful challenge of journalism is that you’re taking facts and boring information and figuring out a way to make it exciting and concerning to read.” She notes that journalism is important because it can spread awareness and keep people informed of the things that are important to them. Many of her articles focus on afterschool events and school controversy because her objective writing perspective minimizes her bias in her reporting, and it’s important to her that students are also active in their extracurriculars. “You have to write historical fiction in every piece. You have to take the history we’re making now, and get people to read it and absorb it without rolling their eyes,” she jokes. She stresses the value of reading and writing, especially as an art because, “you have to paint colorful pictures in people’s head, but your words are black and white.”


    Reyes is currently in training to become an Editor in Chief for The Production, and she assists in leading brainstorms so each reporter can have a lead to pursue.
