Sydney Weiss, Web Editor

Welcome! I am Sydney Weiss, and I am a senior (woo hoo!).  I have been in journalism throughout all of high school. Year after year, I can not stay away from room 115. I have really enjoyed soaking up everything I possibly can about the various platforms, and I have had a ton of fun along the way. While I have held many positions throughout my four years, I am currently Web Editor and Art and Photo Managing Editor. As Web Editor, I help keep our award-winning website running each and every day. This means I post breaking news, interactive quizzes, infographics, and other content. I do not need to tell you that, seeing as you are on the website right now! As Art and Photo Managing Editor, I am in charge of the design aspects of The Leaf. I designed the style sheet for this year, and I design covers and layouts for each issue.

Although I spend a large chunk of my time in room 115, the rest of it goes to the theatre. I have been in musicals and plays of various genres throughout my time at the high school. My favorite show thus far has been “Into the Woods” where I played Milky White (yes, that’s the cow). This was not one of my most prestigious roles, but I love making people laugh, and this role gave me the perfect outlet to do so. Last year, I had the privilege of producing my self-written comedic play “Table for One.” Through this experience, I learned that I love playwriting.

I studied playwriting and fiction this past summer at Camp Interlochen, and I took an experimental writing course at Brown University through Summer@Brown in 2017. I hope to write and produce full-length plays at some point in the future. Enough about my lofty goals! This is not my resume!

My two favorite foods are sushi and chocolate, although I do prefer to eat them separately. I love to joke with and pull pranks on my friends, which has gone as far as convincing them I do stand-up comedy (I do not). As of now, I am thinking about pursuing law (maybe I lied about being finished with the lofty goals), but I am notoriously indecisive, perhaps because I am passionate about many different topics. Regardless, I know that the skills I have learned in room 115 will follow me wherever I go.

TRAILBLAZER. Truth is regarded as a trailblazer for her early involvement with both abolitionist and women’s rights movements. Although she did not live to see many of the results of her efforts, she did impact the nation immensely. Truth helped contribute to the abolition of slavery, increased racial equality, and the ability of women to vote, while she only lived to see abolition.
