The Owl

Kate Schwab

Kate Schwab, Staff writer

Kate is an avid learner who has always loved articulating her opinions. She is excited to learn and write in a community with all of the talented and amazing writers of the owl. Her interests include writing about business, economics and finance. Kate enjoys making connections between subjects in school, and The Owl affords her the freedom to make these connections and write about them. Outside of school, she loves to practice and teach yoga, spend time with friends and family, read, and hang out with her dog, Snickers. Fun Fact: Kate has been a die-hard fan of Barack Obama since age four, and has a shrine in her room to commemorate him. Kate is a green grape supremacist and has little to no patience for those who believe otherwise.
