"A weakness is just a strength that you're not using right." These are the inspirational words Jake Browning, staff writer for The Western Carolinian, lives by.

Jake is from the small town of Mills River, North Carolina. According to him, it wasn't even considered a city until 2009. When asked why he chose to come to Western Carolina University, Jake simply stated that he "really loved the atmosphere" and "just kinda knew" when he first visited that it was where he belonged.

Abbie Findley is a junior at Western Carolina University.

On beginning her journey at the University, she stated “I’m from Gainesville, Georgia, a few hours outside of Atlanta. I went from age three to age 18 in Gainesville. I wound up at Western because after senior year applying for colleges all over the U.S., I got denied everywhere for whatever reason. Western sent me a Dean’s choice application. I applied and got in.”

Jessica Potter is an English Education major and a junior at Western Carolina University. The Western Carolinian is Potter’s first time working with a newspaper, and she chose to write for the paper because she wanted the experience that comes with a job in professional writing.

She says that working for the Western Carolinian gives her the opportunity to go out into the community and meet lots of new people. It also gives her plenty of work to do, which is good because it never hurts to learn how to write.
