The Owl

Saisree Kumar

Saisree Kumar, Features Editor

Saisree is a new addition to the newspaper staff who has been interested in the Owl since Freshman year and decided to join her Sophomore year. When she is not working on improving her writing skills, you can find her in the school auditorium, assembling outfits for different theater events and on-stage performing with the ensemble for Boulder High’s theater program. This year Saisree is looking forward to more writing opportunities and more chances to put herself out there. Saisree has been eager to try her hand at journalism after being raised in a family of journalists but has many interests. She admires journalism because it represents democracy and is an effective way to express your thoughts. Growing up, Saisree has always tried to stand out, and maybe that’s the reason behind her unusual love of purple grapes, but claims it’s because she was raised in an immigrant family. As a result, her goal is to one day change immigration laws to help families like hers.
