Normally when thinking about the typical high school the athletes don’t really mix with

the kid of the newspaper staff. Talia Hendel ’16 defies these expectations. Not only does she

write for the paper but she also manages to play on the Girls’ basketball team and teach special

needs students how to play with Circle of Friends.

“It was the perfect opportunity for me, I love kids and I love playing basketball. So it just

fit,” Hendel said.

When Hendel decided to take this class she quickly learned that she would only be

taking the class for the course credits. She has developed a passion for journalism and hopes to

continue with it into her college career. So next time you see a story with her name under it,

drop what you are doing and read it. You could be seeing the first works of the next buzzfeed
