Westwood Horizon

Jenny Xu
Hi! My name is Jenny, and I'm the Executive Editor of Westwood Student Press. This will be my third year on staff! When I'm not doing homework (and sometimes when I am doing homework) I'm usually found napping around the house. Outside of school, I spend my time figure skating and running hurdles in track. I enjoy cooing over small creatures and will wait in line for 45 minutes for some good milk tea. I'm absolute trash for all stuffed animals and anything that has a clean, simple aesthetic. Sometimes I'm called the Needy Child™ of my friends, as I require many hugs to make it through the day and have a penchant for stealing their food. I'm an avid user of exclamation marks (but never in a story!) to add some excitement to my life.  Also, I am Haley's favorite baby chicken. If for some reason you're ever looking for me, chances are I'm camping out in the press room.

Jenny Xu, Executive Editor
