RHS '23

I am originally from Southern California, but am currently living in Rye, New York and attending Rye High School as a sophomore. I wanted to be a part of Periphery because of the opportunity to bring representation to a broad audience. Creative writing has been a pastime and a passion of mine that I have loved for as long as I can remember. I have an interest in writing for the stage and psychology. I play Field Hockey as a goalie, golf, and perform in school musicals. I am currently learning Spanish and French in my free time.

RHS '22

I am a 16-year-old junior at Rye High School in Westchester, NY. Growing up, I have always been intrigued by different languages and cultures because it really shows how unique each and every one of us is. Personally, I was raised in a home where we spoke primarily Hindi. In school, I learned American Sign Language, and I am currently taking Latin. I feel that learning about different languages and cultures can help make people have a better appreciation for one another. In addition to being part of the magazine, I also do gymnastics and play rugby for my school team.

DFHS '21

I am a senior at Dobbs Ferry High School in Westchester. I grew up in New York City and Playa Del Carmen, Mexico. I am fluent in English and Spanish, and am learning French and Russian. I am passionate about creative writing and science, and I plan to pursue a career in medicine. I have been writing for as long as I can remember and am a co-captain of my school’s creative writing club. I wanted to be a part of Periphery because I believe that art is the best way to express yourself, and that people of all communities and backgrounds should get the chance to use that outlet. Aside from writing, I enjoy painting with watercolors, baking, and going down internet rabbit holes.

DFHS '21

I am a 16-year-old senior at Dobbs Ferry High School. A friend of mine recommended me to join Periphery, and after learning that Periphery offers representation to all, I joined. I love the way this magazine can give people a voice within our large community, giving everyone the ability to vocalize their experiences. Outside of Periphery, I have a passion for both writing and art, especially creating and analyzing pieces of artwork. I truly admire these sorts of platforms that give people chances to vocalize themselves in such a free, open community which Periphery provides.
