Natalie Hoeferle is a senior at Normal Community High School where she competes on the varsity swim team. Natalie is a lover of English. This is her first year in the Journalism program where she is a staff reporter.

I like to travel and adventure. The farthest I've been from home is Barcelona, Spain. My all-time dream is to study abroad and someday teach children English abroad.
