Louise Bond, Staff Writer

My name is Louise Bond; I use she/her/hers pronouns, and I'm a senior at ETHS. This is my 3rd year writing for the News section of The Evanstonian. I also lead the Community Service Club, Intersectional Feminists United club, and Sustainability Committee at school. I love writing news stories because it allows me to learn about the ETHS and Evanston community through a new lens, and meet so many amazing Evanstonians through interviewing and research.
