When readers first see the title of our online publication, they might not have a good impression. Why? Well, people are used to seeing “positive” or at least “more professional” things at school, whether it be the GPO’s or our guiding principles. But “BuzzKill”? That’s certainly not a positive-sounding name for a school’s online publication! It means “something that has a depressing or dispiriting effect.” Why would anyone want that title for a publication that represents the Ambassador School of Global Leadership?

We believe that any information we put up has to be raw, real, and genuine. How our readers interpret it will be up to them.”

Our slogan elaborates more upon our name: Truth, we tell it. Real, we keep it. Buzz, we kill it. No, we are by no means trying to portray negativity through our name. Instead, we are focused on telling the truth, and keeping it raw. Sometimes the truth is not something a lot of people want to hear. Rather, people try to sugarcoat things to make them sound a bit better than they really are. But as student journalists, we believe that any information we put up has to be raw, real, and genuine.

How our readers interpret it will be up to them.

Journalism kills the buzz – aka the gossip.

Our name means to discuss the truth.

-Dalida Farias, Staff Writer

I would respond by saying that BuzzKill is a unique name and we are here to squash all the gossip.

-Christian Monroy, Staff Writer

“BuzzKill” means that it represents today’s news and how it affect people’s lives.

-Dexter Rodriguez, Staff Writer

If any person comes up to me and asks me, “What? ‘BuzzKill?'” I would tell them that we are here to make sure that we are 100% truthful and should not be judged for spreading the truth.

-Zachary Kim, Staff Writer

“Buzz” can be the trendy things, and “kill” can represent something interesting. So when I put them in one phrase it simply means “news trend.”

-Tommy Kim, Staff Writer and Deadline Manager
