    2020–21 jGirls+ Magazine Editorial Board

    I am a senior at Stuyvesant High School in New York City. I spend a lot of my time working on our school newspaper, the Spectator, where I currently am an editor of both the photos and features departments. Most of my free time goes toward my baking endeavors, where I like to experiment, by developing my own recipes and trying more obscure ones. I am excited to be starting as a staff photographer this year. Photography has always been an interest of mine, and I’m looking forward to developing my skills this year.
