Avery is a freshman Creative Writing major and Italian Studies minor who has been telling stories for as long as she can remember, with no intention of stopping. That being said, she loves writing boldly, dancing poorly, making lists, and just about anything with commas. She is a member of the Chapman Cross Country team, and the Hufflepuff house. Her patronus is a basset hound, and her favorite moments occur when there is at least one dog present.

Maithu is a freshman Creative Writing major who lives and loves to write. Whether it be a nasty piece on the unfairness of restricted TV time when she was in 2nd grade, or an opinion piece about diversity in her high school newspaper, she can run away with anything and turn it into a story. She’s in love with anything that involves babies or dogs, and can almost always be counted on to take at least 50 pictures at any given event.
