The Leaf

Danielle Hershenson
Hi, my name is Danielle Hershenson and I am a senior this year at Sycamore High School.

I joined the Leaf this year because I have always loved writing and wanted to incorporate some more of it in my day. This year in journalism I am really excited to learn more about current events, my fellow SHS classmates, and the field of journalism as a staff writer. I can’t wait to write interesting stories and to educate others on important and entertaining topics!! I hope to contribute a lot to the Leaf and become part of this incredible community.

Other than writing, my other creative outlet is photography. In the past I have taken three different photography classes at the high school and am currently enrolled in AP Photography. A lot of my free time is spent taking photographs and developing them. Photography is such an important passion of mine and I can’t wait to continue shooting pictures and learn about this art. 

Aside from photography, other topics I have enjoyed learning about in high school are psychology and language arts. I'm even planning on majoring in English and minoring in Cognitive Neuroscience in college. 

Outside of school I am a part of many organizations including Bbyo, a Jewish youth group, where I was recently President of my chapter and AIPAC (American Israel Public Affairs Committee). I believe that the unique experiences I have gotten through my involvement in these organizations will help me bring a new perspective to the Leaf. I am also a part of Sycamore’s ski club, dedicated to a few volunteer organizations, and a sales associate at TJ Maxx. 

A fun fact about me is that I have been to 42 states and have been out of the country seven times. I love to travel and hope to visit all 50 states, all seven continents and study abroad a few times in my lifetime. 

I am really looking forward to my final year of high school and being a part of the Leaf!! Enjoy :)
