Pronouns: she/her

I am a junior, and this will be my third year on staff. The Pathfinder has helped me find my voice, so I can write about topics that are important to me and hopefully impact my community. Conveying empathy and understanding to those around me are important qualities I try to uphold and keep in mind as I listen to and share people’s stories. Art and music are a big part of my life, and I often find myself painting, singing or listening to music artists like Cavetown and Hozier in my free time. After experiencing my own journey with mental health, I’m interested in studying psychology, which pushes me to learn about why we make the choices we make as humans.

Labeled

English teacher Erin Fluchel poses with the camera she uses during sessions. Fluchel experimented with other types of photography but decided that she preferred family moments most. “[Photographing a wedding] was stressful. It was a long day that I was away from my kids. I felt like I was capturing more of the stage moments and not the spontaneous stuff that I love doing. Im glad that I tried these things, but it wasnt for me. Again, it was less about connection and more about getting perfect things,” Fluchel said.

Freshman Triya Gudipati types on a computer while sophomore Samari Sanders and freshman Cindy Phung write on paper. Gudipati found that typing became second nature as using pencil and paper became an infrequent occurrence. “We can submit something and get feedback much quicker,” Gudipati said. “There’s a lot more things we can do online that we can’t do on paper.”
