The Advocate

Jonathan Mercer
Hello I'm Jonathan - most people call me “Rookie” though. I am a senior at Mayo and was born in West Point, Iowa, but have moved all over the United States. I enjoy playing video games like Halo, Call of Duty, and Five Nights at Freddy's. I play sports including baseball, football, soccer, hockey… almost all of them. I like to debate as well. After high school, I'm going to go be an EMT, since people in this profession help others by saving their lives and getting them the help they need. If you were going to call 911, an EMT would probably show up to help you.

A world with too many questions is a world that many people and I would not want to live in. We want our questions to be answered and for us not to wonder what is out there in the world; this is why I study journalism.

Besides that, I would also like to learn more about health and what is involved in preventing people from suffering illnesses. For example, people get dehydrated, but that is easily avoidable if you know what is happening in the body.

In this class I would like to learn how to use better grammar. I would also like to know how it is in the news field, what tasks are involved, what pressures journalists experience, and how the information gets turned into an actual production or publication.
