Writer Blurbs

Amy Z. (’19)

I’m Amy! I love baking, running, public speaking, and other things normal people find stressful. Talents include cramming on Quizlet, spending several hours thrifting, and only feeling awake when I’m supposed to be falling asleep

Ella R. (’19)

Hi! My name is Ella, and I’m a senior. My favorite Crystal English book is The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao. Outside of school, I love to run, read, and write. I also enjoy traveling with my family, and my favorite place that I’ve ever been is Istanbul, Turkey.

Sarina D. (’19)

Hi, I’m Sarina, and I’m a senior! I am so excited to be an editor of Gryphon Gazette this year with the amazing Ella and Amy, who have been my writing inspirations since freshman year. Outside of school, I love to run, play my instruments and organize google docs. In my free time, you can catch me watching Dance Moms, Grey’s Anatomy, or Bachelor in Paradise.  

Marlena B. (’20)

Hi, I’m Marlena, and I’m a junior. My favorite font is “Lora”. On the weekend you’ll probably find me eating ramen, slaving away on work I didn’t do, or playing with my labradoodle, Clove. If I could move to any other place in the world for three years, I would move to some random German village.

Caitlin R. (’20)

Hi! I’m Caitlin and I’m a junior. I love reading, hanging out with my family, friends, and dogs, and I have an obsession with 30 minute sitcoms (Brooklyn 99, Modern Family, Blackish, The Middle, etc). You’ll find me procrastinating by creating too many playlists on Spotify or emotionally re-watching old concert videos.

Amelia R. (’20)

Hi! My name is Amelia, and I’m a junior. I love writing and reading poetry, taking photos, and watching “The Office” and “Friends” on Netflix. My favorite magazine is The New Yorker, and I especially like the music reviews they do. My favorite bands are Nirvana, Franz Ferdinand, and Muse. I also have an obsession with watching the 73 questions interviews that Vogue does.

Wilson C. (’20)

My middle name is Eliot.

Taylor H. (’21)

Hi, I’m Taylor, and I’m a sophomore. Outside of English class, I enjoy acting, reading, creative writing, and running. Talk to me about Dance Moms, The Hunger Games, or the Asian-American experience. Catch me as Mrs. Soames in Our Town this fall!

Sammie C. (’21)

Hey! My name is Sammie, and I’m a sophomore. In my free time you can find me going for a run, watching documentaries on Netflix, or organizing my Pinterest boards. I love listening to old music and my all time favorite book series is Harry Potter. If you see me in the morning I am probably holding a cup of Philz coffee.

Raquel W. (’21)

Hi, my name is Raquel, and I am a sophomore.  I love staying active and playing sports, especially soccer.  I have a “healthy” obsession with chocolate. In my free time, you can find me listening to Spanish music, rewatching episodes of “the Office,” or reading a good book.
