Determined, goofy, and outgoing, three words I would use to define myself. I am Iyonnah Wheeler a senior at Alton High School. I am currently a reporter in our school newspaper called the Redbird Word. High school has been filled with challenges for me. I overcome an obstacle everyday and for that I am proud. My first two years of highschool I was a stepper on the school’s team, Steppers With A Gift. I wasn’t much involved in school. My senior has been full of brightness,postiviety, and new adventures. I am still working for the Boys and Girls Club of Alton and also in lots of clubs at our school. I am in Student Council, Minority Excellence, Interact Club, Education Talent Search and also Mu Alpha Theta.I have been working at the Boys and Girls Club of Alton for over a year now and I absolutely love it. It is so fun and I love being surrounded by all the positive energy of the club. When I didn’t have anything to look forward to I always had my job. The best peace of mind to me would be kids and I hope one day I will work with kids.
