Mallory Thomison is a senior at Normal Community High School and is involved in Lady Iron soccer and Young Life. This is her second year working with the Inkspot as a staff  reporter. 

I have a passion for helping others and giving advice.

Some advice I live by is that there's always going to be someone who has more than you, and there's always going to be someone who has less than you, so be grateful for what you have.
