Ava Paulsen, Editor in Chief

Ava Paulsen is a founding member of the journalism program at Castaic High School and Editor in Chief of The Daily Howl. She strives to create a paper that stimulates conversation and dives deep into uncovered topics. As a journalist, she is passionate about publishing unspoken stories, exploring diverse perspectives, and adding more depth to the traditional high school newspaper. She has self-published two children’s books about visionary women in STEM and is currently working on a science-fiction novel. Her journalism has earned international recognition from Quill & Scroll and awards from the National Scholastic Press Association and the National Federation of Press Women. She is a proud recipient of the 2022 Gold Medal in Journalism and the Civic Expression Award and Scholarship from Scholastic Art & Writing Awards for her social justice work in writing The Daily Howl's first editorial, "Retiring Hart High’s Race-Based Mascot: What Culture Will We Allow?" She is a fierce defender of the First Amendment and student press freedom. Outside of writing, Ava enjoys making music, star gazing, and eating vegan desserts.
