Hello!
To introduce myself, my name is Anisa, and I am a sophomore in my first year on staff. I am here because I like to read news articles and have long enjoyed writing, so the very thought of a union of the two excites me. I am looking forward to exploring the varied departments of journalistic writing and being able to contribute to this award-winning publication.
When not in class or doing schoolwork, I can often be found at The Studio for Dance, a lively, multifaceted dance studio where I am a member of the performing and competing company. Our company partakes in regional and national dance competitions as well as performances we are selected to put on or participate in.
I consider myself a creative person, which is indicative of my love for music. Primarily, I listen to indie artists like Metric, Courtney Barnett, Grimes, Parquet Courts, and Arcade Fire, and new wave or alternative 80s music in the realm of The Smiths, The Cure, The Pixies, and The Pretenders.
I also take pleasure in drawing portraits, hands, and feet, using glitter glue, and reading fiction novels.
Having grown up a vegetarian and rather recently making the decision to eat vegan, I am a firm believer in abstinence from animal products. I hope to be able to apply all of my enthusiasms and expand my horizons during my time on the staff of The Leaf.
