The Leaf

Aaditi Lele
Hello! My name is Aaditi Lele and I’m a Junior at SHS. This will be my first year writing for the Leaf and I’m so excited to get started with my Journalism experience! For a little bit about me, I love writing, speaking, making art and participating in as many of the extracurriculars at SHS. I particularly lead & engage in many of the civics and international relations based extracurriculars which include my position as President of Model UN and a competitor with our Mock Trial team. Throughout my high school experience, I have bolstered and embraced my passion for social justice and civic engagement and do my best to carry my interests outside of the halls of SHS. This year, I am beyond thrilled to have been chosen as a part of Citizen University’s Youth Collaboratory 2019-2020 Cohort and look forward to sharpening my literacy in civic power and gaining a valuable network of changemakers! Additionally, I carry my passion for civics, social justice, and international relations into my daily life, avidly following current events and pursuing Journalism through my published position as a Staff Writer at Defiant Magazine, a youth-led online social justice publication. You can find my Social Justice & Political pieces here: Defiant Magazine Staff Profile. I also engage these interests with my passion for climate justice in my position as Head of Communications at Zero Hour Ohio, a youth climate justice group. With a rigorous courseload and stockpile of extracurriculars, I’ve developed a passion for calligraphy and bullet journaling to stay organized. This year, I hope to convey my passion for current events, international relations, and civics in my writing for the Leaf!
