School: Lower Merion High

Grade: 11th

Background/interests/hobbies: She plays soccer on a competitive travel team and helps teach German to young kids at a local program. She also competes on her school’s Mock Trial team. “In my free time, I love to read for hours on end, compulsively make hyper-specific Spotify playlists, and binge-watch any Netflix TV shows.”

Reason for applying: “The workshop is a great opportunity to improve my journalistic skills and help me see if journalism is something I want to pursue in the future.”

Looking ahead: “Both my parents are from Switzerland, which has essentially allowed me to grow up seeing two different cultures mesh together in my everyday life. I hope one day through my work to bring both countries closer together.”
