Meet the Staff: Maren Steinke


Ava Keim, Staff Writer

Aspiring journalist Maren Steinke (10) wants the LSE community to know that The Clarion News Team works hard to tell the stories important to the school. 

“People don’t realize what’s going on behind the scenes. We spend so much of our time and put so much of our blood, sweat, and tears into this.”

Steinke’s passion is writing. As she started to learn more about journalism, she wasn’t too sure it was for her.

“I was unsure of pursuing journalism, especially since print media is fading away,” she said. 

Steinke soon realized that the only way to stop that from happening was to take a leap and try it out. As she continued her time on the Clarion, she started to learn that writing was how she could put herself out there. 

“I’m very passionate about sharing accurate and cited news to a wide variety of people,” Steinke said.

 Not only does she love to write, but she also enjoys learning from other reporters and journalists. 

“It makes me happy to be able to be inspired by people who have gone before me,”  Steinke said. 

She has been able to open her eyes to many different types of writing and reporting she can choose from to pursue in her future. Writing is her way to express her creativity and she has many dreams for what her future holds.

“I think it would be really fun to be a foreign correspondent or an investigative reporter for a media outlet,” Steinke said. 

Exploring this interest in journalism has already led her to learn how important it is to live in the moment. She believes that everyone should be more engaged in what’s going on in not only their country but their school as well. She is very grateful for the path she has started to head down and can’t wait for what is to come. 

“I don’t see myself doing anything else, because I just love writing that much,” Steinke said.
