My name is Calliope Osborn, I graduate in 2018, and this is my first year on The Leaf staff. Besides journalism, I am in the Bella Voce choir, Garden Club, and Creative Writing Club. In my free time, I enjoy hanging out with friends, reading, and watching vintage movies. I’m really excited to bring my passion for writing, and my school spirit to this class and The Leaf. Throughout the 2015-2016 school year, I hope my writing skills will benefit from my time spent in room 11
