Claire Berlier, Deputy Content Editor

Hello everyone! I’m Claire Berlier, and I am a junior. This is my third year at the Leaf and I am absolutely thrilled to be the deputy content editor, which basically means I oversee stories and designs in the Package section and help writers with their stories in all the sections. 

I joined the program two years ago because of my love for writing and now I am helping other writers make their stories better! I love all the opportunities this program gives me to learn new skills, know what’s happening around SHS, and fine-tune my writing. Speaking of writing, in 202o I won an ‘Excellent’ OSMA award for a Sports-Opinion piece; in 2021, I won a Best of Sno award for ‘Aftermath of Atlanta-area shootings’ and a ‘honorable mention’ OSMA award for in-depth reporting. 

Besides working on The Leaf, I am also involved in cross country and winter and spring track. I’ve been running every year since 7th grade, and I’m on my eighth pair of running shoes! Who knows how many shoes I’ll go through by senior year? Another thing I’m the president of Women in STEM club, which I started two years ago. We bring in women speakers from various STEM jobs that you might not have known existed to help you learn about all the different career options you have and the experiences women have working in a male-dominated field. Personally, I want to go into a STEM job (probably statistics) so I love hearing all the advice our speakers share!

Outside of school, I spend most of my free time sewing and crocheting. The list of clothes I have sewn continues to get longer and longer, including a romper, multiple skirts, a jacket, and even my homecoming dress. One of my favorite projects was a mini bucket hat for my dog (although she’s not the biggest fan of wearing it—clearly she is not going to be a fashion icon anytime soon). 

I am so excited for another year at SHS and writing for The Leaf and I hope you enjoy reading as much as I enjoy producing it!
