The Dispatch

Faith Lawrence
Hello! I’m Faith and this is my second year on The Dispatch staff, last year I was a staff writer and now I’m an InDepth Editor and Managing Editor of the paper! I’m so excited to be back on the staff and write stories for the paper. Besides journalism, I am involved in technical theatre at Bowie where I love painting scenery and stage managing. In my free time, I enjoy watching silly shows on Netflix, buying unhealthy amount of clothes online, travelling, eating lots of Kerbey Queso and Ben and Jerry’s Phish Food ice cream as well as taking as many naps as possible. I am known for always chewing gum, having bursts of energy that come out of nowhere, doing all my homework the class period before it’s due and randomly sending people pictures of my dog.
