The student voice of Sycamore High School in Cincinnati, Ohio

The Leaf

Hi!  I am a junior at Sycamore High School, and this is my third year on The Leaf staff.  This is my second year as the web editor-in-chief.  My duties consist of managing and updating the website as well as editing and posting articles and directing members of the web staff. Outside of journalism, I enjoy reading, writing, and drawing. Most of my limited free time is spent on the piano or lost in a good book (sometimes one I have read over ten times). I love Charles Dickens's A Tale of Two Cities, F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby, and Victor Hugo's Les Miserables. These are my escapes from the stress of school. However, the majority of my time is split between school, dancing at the College Conservatory of Music (CCM), and clubs and activities.  I am currently a part of Math Club, Book Club, and Science Fair. As for the future, I hope to study pre-med in college. In the next two years, I hope to improve my leadership skills.

Harsimran Makkad, Web Editor-In-Chief
