The Owl

Hannah Cohen

Hannah Cohen, Opinions Editor

Hannah Cohen is a junior and is ecstatic to start her second year on staff at the Owl! Her love for words has taken many forms- from journalism to fiction to poetry, and now to editing, leading her to serve on the Editorial Board for jGirls Magazine. She also spends her time stumbling through sheet music, shouting “decorum delegates!” as an officer for Model UN, or elbow-deep in flour for her latest baking concoction. Otherwise, she enjoys being outdoors, whether with company (including her lovely labradoodle), skis, a tent, or simply a good piece of fiction and a slice of shade. Although Hannah is slightly preferential to the sweeter, more robust taste of red grapes, she knows that the bliss of biting into a crunchy grape transcends color.
