Alex Miranda, Editor-in-Chief

Alex Miranda is a senior at DGS and an Editor-in-Chief for the Blueprint. He began his journalism endeavors as one of only two sophomores on the 2018-19 staff, competing at IHSA sectionals and state for editorial writing. As a junior, he was the Video News Director and achieved multiple accolades, most notably becoming a member of the 2020 IJEA All State Journalism team.

In his senior year, Miranda is excited to further pursue his passion for reporting and has a primary interest in features writing and advocacy journalism. He plans to continue his work as a head Changemaker representative and Snowball director, taking initiative to ensure the District 99 community is welcoming and inclusive toward all.

In his free time, Miranda is an avid roller coaster enthusiast, thrill-seeker and collaborative problem solver. Doing adventurous things is a major part of his life and he finds there is a lot of fun to be had in overcoming obstacles and facing his fears. Ultimately, Miranda knows the most important part of life is surrounding oneself with supportive friends and family, and he is blessed to have both.
