Rachelle Saerang, Editor

Rachelle Saerang is a 17 year-old in her Senior Year of Colonia High School. She is involved in Asian Culture Club, Fashion Club, French Honors Society, National Honors Society and Rho Kappa. Rachelle is best described as an advent "thrifter", costume design analyzer, traveler at heart, amateur sketcher, and a poet in private. Although she can listen to all languages and eras of music, her absolute favorite is anything that makes her feel like the main character of a coming-of-age film. Her preferred works of written literature are anything set in the 1800s, sci-fi romance, and foreign fashion magazines. Being that her favored subjects are English and Art, she hopes to find a career path in a combination of the two so long as she is commuting by plane. In her second year working for the newspaper, she hopes to inform and entertain readers of Colonia High's Declaration.
