Andrew (Andy) Simmons is a junior at Orangewood High School. His position in Ethic News is illustrator and writer. He chose to become an illustrator because he has been doing both traditional and digital art and design since he was very young. He chose to be a writer because he has exceedingly ample experience in writing, as it was his primary source of communication in junior high. He used to write poems and paint pictures for Reflections contests in middle school. When Andrew had the realization that art and writing was something he could do to contribute to the education, inspiration, and imagination of others, it immediately became an aspiration and passion of his to construct works of creative writings and art work.
