Jennifer Jia, Editor-in-Chief

Communications senior Jennifer Jia is a third-year staffer and the Editor-in-Chief of The Muse. She is also a member of the Speech and Debate Team, the social media manager of her local nature center, and a member of her school’s honor societies. When she is not obsessively researching about college or attempting to study 12 hours straight for her AP classes, she enjoys writing, drawing, and taking nature hikes—yes, even in Florida’s melting heat. Her goal as the Editor-in-Chief is to provide quality journalism that the newsmagazine’s audience can enjoy, whether that would be articles, videos, social media posts, or layout designs. Undoubtedly, her time in the publication has given her a voice, a passion for journalism that she hopes to continue, and most importantly, The Muse family who she considers to have created lifelong friendships. While the publication can be stressful at times, she embraces a positive attitude and can thoroughly say that The Muse has been the highlight of her high school experience.

Theatre junior Elle Holzhauer acts as the lead role in communications senior Brianna Seaberg’s film “Change of Heart.” Holzhauer plays Claire, a girl who strives to find internal peace after the emotional trauma of losing a grandparent. “Acting in ‘Change of Heart’ was an amazing experience, as I got to collaborate with other talented students and refine my own style of acting,” Holzhauer said. “That just makes me love acting more. It’s not just the end product, but also the experience.”

“With my artwork, my goal is to give people a reaction, usually a negative one,” visual junior Ava Sodergren said. “Some artists paint a pretty flower, but I believe that art is so much more than a flower. It can address social problems in society and change people’s views on a subject.”
