Emily Teismann, Editor in Chief

Hi, everyone. I'm Emily (though some of you might know me as E, Em, Mom, Grannie, etc). I’m part of Class 2021. My hobbies include drawing, reading, writing, and being my sarcastic, weird self. I’m a self proclaimed nerd and geek. I'm also huge Marvel and DC fan. I’m a part of Chess club, Audacious Authors, Spanish club, Card Game club, Scholar Bowl, NHS, Reading Club, GSA, and Anime Club. I am also very much into D&D. I joined Magazine due to my love for writing and it being a further outlet for growth. As an added bonus, it looks great on a college resume. In the future (job wise), I hope to become either an editor or an author/illustrator. But for now, I am looking forward to what the 2020-2021 school year will bring and I'm excited to once again done the role of one of Holt's voices as an Editor in Chief. Remember two things: “When it rains, look for rainbows. When it’s dark, look for stars.”- Oscar Wilde and “You is smart. You is kind. You is important.”- Aibileen Clark
