The Owl

Ella Gibney

Ella Gibney, Staff Writer

Ella Gibney is a sophomore at Boulder High School, and this is her first year writing for The Owl. Ella has always enjoyed writing and debating social justice issues, and she grew up reading the editorials in newspapers, along with her horoscope (she’s a proud Leo). She is excited to write about events from within the school and the outside world that affect the BHS student body. Ella is an avid boba drinker, and you can usually find her listening to music while wandering Pearl Street in search of the best ice cream flavor. In her free time, Ella is also a sprinter on the Boulder High track team and participates in Colie’s Closet, a nonprofit organization. She is highly opinionated on everything from music to feminism and LGBTQIA+ rights, and strongly believes it is harmful to call a little girl “bossy.” Ella absolutely will not stand for the consumption of purple grapes, as green grapes are clearly superior in all aspects.
