About the Contributor

Lilit Aprahamian, Marketing Manager
Singing, acting, and writing all serve as an entrance into the creative world, and a platform to creatively express my own words and thoughts in an articulated way. It is fascinating to see the flow within poetry, and to bring that artistic side wherever I go. The creative elements within greatly complement each other and have helped me discover who I am. As a new voice to journalism, I hope to bring this insight, as well as my other passions, to a wider audience through my featured writing. When aside from the stage, I drift my focus on volunteering and providing support for children with special needs. Currently, I am involved with Drama Club in my fourth year, now President, and am the Secretary of the Senior Board. I am also involved in the Choir Program as the Class Representative and am Secretary of the Improv Club.
