The Leaf

Taylor Close
Hi! My name it Taylor Close, and this is my fourth year here in journalism. This year I am in charge of our online magazine called The Leaflet along with my other half Sydney Evans.

I can’t believe that it is already senior year, it feels like yesterday I was roaming the hallways getting lost.

I have learned so much through this program, from how to write within a time constraint to how to design and use infographics, and I have found a love for graphic design along the way.

In my free time I love to be outside on hikes or just enjoying nature in general, listening to music, or reading/watching anything Harry Potter related.    I was devastated when I didn’t receive a Hogwarts acceptance letter, but I guess Sycamore isn’t that bad either.

Last year I took AP Biology and absolutely loved everything about it, so I am hoping to study biology in college next year.

I am interning at a neuroscience lab on University of Cincinnati’s campus and it is showing me just how much I love field and lab work.

I also love traveling and seeing the rest of the world and what it has to offer.

I enjoy photography and the creativity and self expression that comes along with it. I love spending my weekends in different parks with friends and my camera just goofing around and taking photos.

Taylor Close, Leaflet Editor-in-Chief
