Amy Grill, Social Media Editor

My name is Amy Grill and I am a sophomore at ETHS. This is my first year on The Evanstonian, and I am the Social Media editor and plan to write for the Arts and Entertainment section! Outside of The Evanstonian, I play badminton and I enjoy baking, dancing and hanging out with friends! I enjoy The Evanstonian because I am able to learn about the ETHS and Evanston community!
