Pronouns: she/her

I am a senior, and this will be my second year on staff. The Pathfinder has helped me grow as a writer and push myself outside of my comfort zone. In school, I play field hockey, and I’m in a couple of clubs. Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my friends and family, along with reading and painting. I find joy in small moments with the people I care about and strive to use the confidence I have gained from writing in my day-to-day life.

Prejudice in the media

Senior Trisha Manna examines a flower while at a fairy-themed tea party that her friends decided to throw. Manna picked out the music they played for their party. “My favorite thing was the feeling of being there,” Manna said. “It kind of felt like it was a world away because we had school the next day [and] we were escaping from that.”

A whimsical affair

Junior Cameron Chandler walks to class at St. Louis Community College. Chandler first joined the program after a year of online school. “My mom was the one who really pushed me to do it. I think just trying new things [is a big benefit of the program] because in a normal, no COVID [situation, I don’t think that I would have joined],” Chandler said. “I was really looking into more opportunities because I had a lot of downtime thinking about where I was going, what the future held for me. I think just really taking advantage of all opportunities that are thrown at you [is important].”
