Cassidy Tyler, staff writer

Hello! My name is Cassidy Tyler and I am a junior at SHS. This is my third year working with the Leaf and my second year working with the yearbook to create content for the school and community. I am the business manager for both which essentially means that I help sell the Leaf and the yearbook (subscribe to the Leaf and buy your yearbook!) and work with businesses to advertise in our magazine.  

I joined the program because my sister told me I needed to at least once; however, I had not expected to fall completely in love with journalism or take a leadership position, but I am so excited to see what else the program has to offer. The program has given me the opportunity to work with so many amazing people and has enhanced my writing, communication skills, and problem solving skills.  

Outside of class I love to bake, read, and write. I mostly write poetry, but I sometimes branch into other forms of writing, and often post them on my instagram (@oneline_ata_time if you want to follow me). 

I am so excited for another year of working with the Leaf and creating content for all of you! I hope you enjoy it as much as I love to create it!

RAINBOW FOR EQUALITY. Anyone who has done much research about the LGBTQ+ community has most likely heard of the Westboro Baptist Church, described by the Washington Post as “cult-like” and “homophobic. They are known for protesting soldiers’ funerals, being anti-semitic, and promoting the death penalty for LGBTQ+ Americans. However, just across the street from the church is a house that has been dubbed the “Equality House.” The house is painted rainbow and is a resource center for Planting Peace, a global organization that promotes peace and equality.

MASKED EMOTIONS. William Shakespeare once said that “the eyes are the window to the soul”, something that has only become more clear in the past year as masks have left our eyes as our main facial features. Centuries after Shakespeares time, modern studies have indeed shown that the eyes do reveal more than what is perceived through speech alone. So how have eyes becoming our most visible feature affected our nonverbal communication?

PANDEMIC PHOTOGRAPHY. As with many other professions photography has been affected by Covid-19 many events are being canceled and many are stuck inside. With these limitations photographers have been forced to get creative with their art, some capturing more personal photos while being stuck inside and others capturing the pandemic through photographing essential workers and now empty spaces like in the photo above of the eerily deserted Florida shore during quarantine. “... highlighting the many talented photographers who are able to capture a unique moment or perspective in a truly remarkable period of history,” said the Anonymous artists behind the Covid Photo Museum.
