The Dispatch

Shikha Patel





Hey, my name is Shikha Patel. I am a junior and this is my second year on the newspaper staff. I am so excited to be part of such an incredible journey here at Bowie. Newspaper is one of the only things that makes school actually fun and interesting, I love to write and contribute to the school’s newspaper. I really enjoy taking pictures and one of my favorite things to do is traveling. My favorite place I have been so far is Venice, Italy. During my free time I like to listen to music and take my doggy, Andy on a walk! I have a twin sister, so if you see someone that looks just like me, it might not be me. I am so excited to write for The Dispatch and work on the online Dispatch this year and I just can’t wait to start my first year on the newspaper staff with some of the best people!
