Hello! My name is Gurnoor Makkad and I am the broadcast editor as well as a copy editor for The Leaf. As a sophomore, I am incredibly excited to start my second year in journalism! I hope that I can continue to further my writing skills as part of The Leaf staff and that I can start to hone my journalistic abilities by trying new things this year.

   I thoroughly enjoy reading and writing, which is part of the reason I joined journalism during the 2021-22 school year. Some of my favorite books are In 27 Days by Alison Gervais, and Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver. In addition to reading and writing, I appreciate the fine arts. I like to sing, dance, and act-- especially when performing is involved.

  I like to spend my free time with my family as well. I have 2 sisters: one older and one younger. I am especially close with my younger sister, who is 13. We do just about everything together.

   On a closing note, I would like to share with you one of my strengths: I try my best to be optimistic toward both myself and others. That being said, embodied by the words of Auliq Ice, my favorite quote of all time is: “Laughter is like a windshield wiper; it doesn't stop the rain, but allows us to keep going.”
