Brooke Landrum , Print Editor-in-Chief

Hello! This is my fourth and sadly final year on staff and I am a Co Editor-in-Chief of The Leaf! I am a senior and hopefully will be starting over again as a lowly freshman at a University next year. Aside from spending all my time in the journalism room I am the President of DECA for SHS and I compete in personal financial analysis and public relations. I’m also a member of the Environmental club. I miss Belize more and more and more every day. If you ever can't find me, contact my co editor Elizabeth Rickert because I’m probably with her doing something. Travel is my passion and I can and will talk about for hours and hours every day.Some of my proudest moments are placing in the GMCs for swimming my sophomore year, my Shakira impersonation and going to Internationals for DECA as a junior (not in that order). Thanks for checking out my page!

These new dolls will be released over the next month and will be sold in all major retail locations. The differences are in ethnicity and body type, including height and weight. There is no set prediction for how well the dolls will sell, but the goal is to start a revolution of self confidence in young children.

Barbie breaks body bias

A ‘woman crush’ is any female that another female would love to spend the day with. There are many reasons for First Lady Obama to be my woman crush, aside from the fact that she is in fact beautiful. She is a mix of Eleanor Roosevelt and Jackie Kennedy, exactly what today’s girls need.

A common technique swimmers employ before a race is to roll their shoulders to loosen up their muscles. I am mid roll in this photo and you can see how one shoulder has a large lump protruding from it while the other does not. This lump is my shoulder bone as it hyper-extends due to the act that the muscle was no longer holding it in place.

Many refugees face years on displacement before they are given the opportunity to come to America. As bombing in Syria continues, there are steadily becoming few homes to return to if given the opportunity. 36.7% of these displaced individuals are 12 years old or younger.

Costuming and Halloween should be a source of fun for kids. They should not have to worry about being harassed or age inappropriate attire. Part of the problem is that costume stores almost entirely have sexual costumes.
