The Owl

Clara Thomas

Clara Thomas, Arts & Entertainment Editor

Clara Thomas is a senior at Boulder High, and she’s excited to be a part of the Owl again. She hopes to bring a love of writing, as well as a passion for the arts, to the newspaper. Said passion is apparent in her activities outside of school, which include ballet, violin, and art. In the little free time she has, she enjoys reading, getting tea with friends, researching any topic that interests her, and listening to music or audiobooks while playing unhealthy amounts of solitaire. While she believes no fruit could compare to raspberries, in a life-or-death situation she would choose green grapes over purple.
