Sydney Evans, Leaflet Editor-in-Chief

Hello!
My name is Sydney Evans, and I am a fourth-year member of SHS’s journalism program. I was originally introduced to this class by my sister and after my freshman year, I fell in love.
Since my freshman year, I have been a leader in the class, taking on the role as an editor my sophomore year. I have been an editor for the website, The Leaf, and finally The Leaflet. I absolutely love to design and create cool, new infographics and learn new techniques on the Adobe programs.
I am also a Varsity water polo player and have been for the past two years, which is coincidentally also the same amount of time I have been playing the sport.
In my free time, I love to draw and have even been able to incorporate this passion into my journalism career as the staff cartoonist.
I also love working with my older sister, Taylor, to make drawings of characters and scenes from her novel to help promote her work and inspire others to be creative.
I hope to have a career in astrophysics after graduating college and I look forward to my senior year and everything I will get to experience afterward!

WE THE PEOPLE. Created by Shepard Fairey, the same artist who created the “HOPE” posters, these posters popped up in every march. They depicted different minorities such as Muslims, Latinos, and African Americans. “After this divisive campaign season with it’s fierce policies and statements aimed at women and minority groups, it was important to show the world and our country that there are still so many citizens who care about protecting the rights of all people,” said Jacob Spiegel, 12.
