Hannah Lee, Copy Editor

Hi, welcome to my bio! My name is Hannah Lee and I will be serving as Copy Editor and part of the Business Staff. I am a senior and this is my third and final year in the journalism staff. I am excited to see what this year will bring for The Leaf! As part of the Business Staff, I handle all the demands and sales for the Leaf news magazine, organize local advertisements on the Leaf pages for funds, and more. (Another thing I get to do that I love is design and coordinate Journalism t-shirts this year!) As Copy Editor, I edit weekly beats and issue stories of fellow writers, so that all writings for the Leaf magazine and website are written according to par. I am also part of Unified for Uganda (U4U) as a Sponsorship Coordinator, which is important in connecting Ugandan children who are in need with locals who want to help them. U4U at SHS is the second largest chapter and hold large responsibilities to help destitute children in Uganda have the basic necessities, including education. In addition, I am Secretary of Chinese Club. I took Mandarin Chinese from level one in seventh grade to AP Chinese last year and gotten to love the language and the memories I’ve made in that familial class. Also, music has always been a large part of my life since I was little. I played piano since I was young, taking lessons and having recitals. Since fifth grade I took up the clarinet in the school band. Now I am principal clarinetist in the school concert band, and take part in my church orchestra, and local honor bands. This year I am in the top Cincinnati Youth Wind Ensemble (the top group was made this year, prior it was just one ensemble). I am also bilingual in English and Korean. I use my bilingual skills to translate sermons from Korean to English for members at my church. Some of my favorite small moments in life are car rides with the radio on, being wrapped up in thick blankets on cold days, movie/TV nights with the family, good fortune, perfect weather, laughing with someone over something stupid that we both found funny, free food, and evening walks. Something I try to remind myself to do is living more in the ‘now’ and staying positive. Thanks for learning more about me. Now learn more about SHS and the world by clicking on the articles to the right!
