The Owl

Clara Fraser

Clara Fraser, Opinions Editor

Clara Fraser is a senior this year and a staff writer for The Owl. Writing is something that Clara has always adored - as well as more artistic pursuits, which she hopes to further incorporate into aspects of her journalism. She looks forward to seeing how The Owl can develop in the coming year - and is excited about the prospect of it being a connecting factor between students during online learning. In her spare time, although usually taken up by wildly procrastinating, Clara enjoys avidly reading The New Yorker, spending time in the outdoor world (best if accompanied by good company or with her dog), and dabbling in various art forms. Throughout quarantine, Clara has developed a love of afternoon naps and a thriving gingersnap addiction, although admittedly not one for grapes, so her take on the purple-green controversiality is unfortunately rather uninformed. However, if she had to say, Clara would argue that a combination of sweetness and crispness is crucial, regardless of color.
