The Owl

Amelia Chapman, Staff writer

Amelia Chapman is a senior this year at Boulder High and a new member of The Owl. She loves creative writing but hasn’t had much exposure to journalism, which is why she is so excited about joining the paper. By being apart of The Owl, Amelia also hopes to further develop her own writing skills and immerse herself more into the Boulder High community. Whenever she has time, Amelia can be found trail running up steep mountains, watching Spanish telenovelas (Las Chicas del Cable is her favorite), or hiking/napping with her dogs (all of which are rescues and two of which somewhat resemble rodents). Amelia also enjoys spending time with her friends and eating good food and frequently combines the two by going out to brunch or on picnics. However, she firmly believes that no picnic is complete without the presence of the superior fruit— green grapes.
