Anne Marsh, Creative Projects Director

Hi,
I’m Annie Marsh! I’m a senior at SHS and I am a creative director for The Leaf. I joined the journalism team because I love to write and I love the idea of being able to broadcast my voice to the whole school. Having the means to represent my fellow students and speak out about issues has been extremely rewarding.
I am also the president of Mindfulness Group and I participate in Model UN.
I am passionate about animal rights, fashion, and creative writing, and I enjoy hiking, yoga, and going on adventures with my friends.
My favorite shows are “New Girl" and "The Office.”
When I’m not enjoying free time filled with friends and shows, I am working to further my goals at school and at home.
I have learned a lot during my three years on The Leaf staff and throughout my four years in high school; building relationships with teachers and peers and broadening my view of the world have been just a couple of the rewards of being apart of The Leaf.
Also, I LOVE DOGS!!!

TAKING GOOD CARE. Senior Anne Marsh and her Havanese Louis leave the veterinarian’s office after a check-up. “It’s important to keep both you and your pets safe during flu season. I love my Golden Retriever Luna, and I have been extra careful about her socializing with other dogs,” said Rishav Dasgupta, 12. Canines can be at a higher risk of contracting the flu if they are around other dogs who may be ill, and it is vital to catch symptoms early to help treat your pup.

RIP. Students have learned a hard lesson after the death of popular video-sharing app Vine in January. “I have had many regrets in my seventeen and a half years of life. One of them was never appreciating Vine for what it was until it was too late. It has determined so much of our culture today - indeed, you do it for the Vine, and the Vine only,” said Kiri Wang, 12. Appreciating the small things in life like a good chuckle from a Vine is vital to our well being, and students continue to remember the app in its glory days.

RIP Vine
