Emely Chairez, Editor-in-Chief

Hello! My name is Emely Chairez and I am the Editor-in-Chief this year. I’m a senior and I have been in Mass Media for three years. My favorite thing about it is that I can learn more about the environment around me and am able to express my opinions about the world I live in. Outside of Mass Media, I am a leader in T.I.E. club and GSA. I like to listen to Harry Styles, watch Marvel movies and use 0.7 mm Papermate Felt Flair Tip Medium pens.
