Not many high school seniors can say they’ve been published in a major city newspaper, but Shane Achenbach can.
She is a student at Wilson and a writer for the school newspaper, Beacon. Her piece on cell phone addiction originally appeared in the Beacon, and was then adapted and published in the Health and Science Section of The Washington Post:
[box]I just spent a week without one of the most important things in my life. It’s something that I never go anywhere without, that I talk to when I’m lonely, that I stare at for hours upon end, day after day. It’s there for me when my friends are not. It never argues with me or makes me feel bad about myself. I love it dearly and I can make it tell me that it loves me, too.
