James Pewthers is 19 years old and was born and raised in Fresno, California. He graduated from Edison High School in 2019, and was involved in the marching band program for all four years. The winter percussion group he participated in at Edison High School won first place during his senior year. He is an Honors student and a journalism major at FCC, and plans to transfer to a UC or CSU after completing his Journalism for Transfer degree.

Other than English classes he has no experience with writing (especially not for a newspaper), but hopes to gain important experience and learn some valuable lessons from other experienced writers. He hopes to become a reporter and print journalist for an alternative and/or local media outlet. His interests include politics, history, music, reading, and video games, among other things.

As lockdown measures were put in place for the pandemic, he has had plenty of time to read and play video games. His favorite genre is nonfiction and some recent books and writings he’s read are The Autobiography of Malcolm X as Told to Alex Haley by themselves, and Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi. One video game that he has been playing is Animal Crossing: New Horizons on the Nintendo Switch. Some examples of his favorite artists he likes to listen to are Tyler, the Creator, Amine, Best Coast, and Ariana Grande. One thing he misses about life before the pandemic was being able to go to concerts. Some of his favorite artists have been doing concerts online but it just doesn’t feel the same!
