My full name is Sean Cassidy Powers.  My name is as Irish as a pint of Kilkenny's beer, but in fact I have as much Irish blood in me as a cancer stick has protein.  No, in fact I am a little Jewish, German, Russian, Polish, Austrian, Turkish, Catholic, and 100% American. I was born on December 15, 1986 in Chicago, IL, and raised in Homewood, IL. I'm currently a senior at Homewood-Flossmoor High School.  Next fall I will be studying broadcast-journalism at the University of Missouri-Columbia.  In my well populated town of Homewood some of the things I do to keep myself entertained are writing, reading, biking, running, listening to alternative rock music, watching movies and managing my radio show called Close Up on my high school's radio station, WHFH-FM.  My job for WHFH is station manager which basically entails managing the overall operation of the radio station.  I also manage WHFH's web site,  I also serve as the Internet Editor for my high school's newspaper The Voyager.

Besides having numerous interests, I am also a strong-hearted, passionate Democrat.  For WHFH, I have covered the most recent Presidential  and Senatorial Primaries and Election.  For my radio show, I have produced a wide-range of programs ranging from political specials to radio plays to historical programs to local news stories.  My very first radio documentary aired February 27, 2003.  The show covered the psycological effects of teenage women during pregnancy.  I created the program for my broadcasting class.  In order to pass the class, the documentary had to meet a 55:00 time length.  For more information on this program, go here

Besides having a love for Broadcast-Journalism, I also have a love for a girl named Stacy, who I have known for three years.
