Lila Englander, Assignment Editor

I am currently a senior. This year I serve as an assignment editor. I love writing about people or groups with fascinating stories who often fly under the radar. Beyond learning to use the Adobe design programs and developing my writing skills, journalism has allowed me to pursue my love of learning and gain a deeper understanding of the profound value of collaboration. I enjoy participating in Academic Quiz Team, Chinese Club and TEAMS team. I love backpacking, kayaking, climbing, reading and napping. I am learning Chinese at school at the AP level and can read, write and speak Hebrew because I went to Jewish day school until eighth grade. I also sharpened my Hebrew skills during junior year while studying abroad for a semester in the desert of Israel through Alexander Muss High School in Israel. The past three summers, I have been lucky enough to intern at a small nonprofit called Design Impact. My favorite book is "Infinite Jest" by David Foster Wallace. My favorite T.V. shows are "The Wire" and "True Detective." My three favorite news sources are "The New York Times," "The Atlantic," and "The Onion." I also listen to "This American Life" on NPR every week. Although I am interested in pursuing a career in engineering, I am confident that journalism will benefit me wherever I end up. I am looking forward to another great year on staff!
