Alejandra Fraire
Hello my fellow students of McNeil, my name is Alejandra Fraire, now a senior. I attended McNeil my whole high school career along with my twin sister and this is my second year on newspaper staff,  and I have the honour of being copy and feature editor this year. I’m excited for this year, my classes and stories, and improving my art skills since I love art, writing, and history-and I also love music.
