Meena Sharma, Staff Writer

Hello, my name is Meena Sharma, and I am new to The Evanstonian this year. I am a sophomore and a staff writer. I have a few other commitments outside of The Evanstonian, which include the ETHS JV tennis team, Emerge and dance at DCC (Dance Center of Chicago). Ever since I was handed my first copy of The Evanstonian as a freshman, I knew I wanted to become a writer for the newspaper and a part of what I believe to be a fabulous community within the high school. I have a passion for writing and think that the process of gathering, investigating and distributing news stories is an incredible experience. I very much look forward to my time being part of the staff of our great school paper.
