The Owl

Ella Webber, Staff writer

Ella Webber is a senior at Boulder High and a new member of The Owl. She’s excited to be a part of the paper and hopes to have the opportunity to share the stories of students who aren’t always heard. She hopes to learn as much as possible about the world of journalism and to improve and expand her writing style. Ella is a rower and has been on the crew team for five years and when she’s not out on the water she spends her time exploring the outdoors and all the natural wonders Colorado has to offer. She enjoys fishing and rock climbing with her friends and can be heard blasting ABBA at all hours of the day. One of Ella’s heroes is the “The Queen of Disco” Donna Summer who overcame prejudice and became a bestselling artist. As a disco queen herself, Ella loves to dance (although she’s not the best at it). She prefers the bright and flavor of green grapes.
