Caroline Veraldo , Sports Chief

My name is Caroline Veraldo and this is my second year on the staff of the Leaf. I joined the Leaf staff because I love to write and I love news. I am also interested in politics and social issues around the world, specifically immigration and education for girls around the world. I spend a lot of my time reading the news stories on the CNN app and keeping myself informed about what is going on in the news. I am considering a major in journalism in college with a minor in international studies or Latin American studies. I am currently the sports chief of staff and I take pride in designing many of the sports pages in each issue of the Leaf. Journalism is my favorite class and I am very glad I can be a part of the Leaf.
