Selah is a BHS senior who enjoys writing and wants to continue improving her skills by joining the OWL. She hopes to bring to light to important issues in and beyond the Boulder High community and share some of her many opinions. When she’s not doing work for her classes, Selah enjoys nature. She grows many plants, including purple grapes in her backyard, which she far prefers to the green ones. She spends a lot of time hiking, camping, and enjoying the Colorado mountains. Selah likes to read. She often reads fiction; however, philosophy and nonfiction are also her favorites. She is also a singer and piano player and has written several songs of her own and many in collaboration with her brother. As well as music, Selah often finds her free time filled with drawing and painting.
