Westwood Horizon

Anouka Saha, Opinions Editor

When I'm not in student press, I'm usually playing piano, singing, reading, or watching TV shows (Avatar: The Last Airbender is my favorite!). I go through phases of music really fast, but my constant favorite is Florence + the Machine. I'm also a member of Westwood’s choir program, and sing in the chamber choir. I am a huge fan of Chuy’s creamy jalapeno dip and am very excited for another year on student press!
