Aileen Coyne
Loyal, honest, and light-hearted are just a few words that describe Aileen Coyne ’16.

A passionate swimmer, Coyne started competing at the age of seven. She currently swims six days a week and competes in distance freestyle divisions. She is also lifeguard certified and spent some time over the summer lifeguarding at the Fairfield County Hunt Club.

Coyne has been a staff writer for Inklings since the second semester of her sophomore year. She is a dedicated student who enjoys the freedom in the course load of senior year. She is currently taking three math classes—personal finance, ap multivariable calculus, and ap statistics—as math is her favorite subject.

In addition to math, Coyne has always loved the writing component of English class.

“I would so much rather pick up a newspaper than pick up a book,” she explained, “so joining Inklings [has always] made sense.”
