Introducing Jennifer Cho

Jennifer Cho, 16 years of age and a rising junior at Downey High School, has been writing for the Downey Patriot as an intern since the Spring of 2009. A consistent reader of the newspaper, she discovered this internship opportunity while reading an open call for intern applications in the Downey Patriot. Cho is known for her diligence in her studies, and has had rigorous honors and AP classes throughout her high school career. A well-rounded and highly involved student, Cho plays for Downey High School's tennis team, and holds the position of Secretary for Key Club, both since her freshman year to present. Adding to her list of school activities, she will also be a part of the yearbook staff this upcoming year. Outside of school, Cho has dedicated ten years to master the piano, and has also volunteered at the Rancho Los Amigos National Rehabilitation Center's volunteer office since her 8th grade summer. Journalism is one of her key interests, and she is excited to continue her internship to expand her knowledge and experiences.
