Editor in Chief:

Jacob Landau ’22

Jacob Landau, not to be confused with famed visual artist Jacob Landau, adores famed visual art. This year, as Editor-in-Chief, Jacob hopes to foster a creative and warm environment wherein students can enjoy red ink—the best club at Wellesley High School. In his free time, Jacob enjoys reading, cooking, teaching his grandmother how to use Skype, and taking deep dives into Spotify’s classical music playlists.

Managing Editor:

Aaron Lai, ’23

Aaron likes to spend his time listening to music. Feel free to start a conversation with him about Hip Hop, Soul, RnB, Funk, Jazz, Pop, Latin Music, Rock, or anything you want! He prides himself in his bars and his ability to spit fire.

Senior Contributing Editor:

Andrew Ng, ’22

Andrew—avid hot sauce enthusiast and composer of mediocre chamber music—loves reading Vonnegut and Tolkien instead of going to bed (often to the detriment of his sleep), hiking in the great outdoors, listening to a strange variety of music from The Traveling Wilburys to Stravinsky, and writing for Red Ink!


Jana Chan, ‘22

Fueled by an undying love for the winter season (both because of the weather and the holiday atmosphere), Jana spends most of her free time reading a good book, doodling, and building puzzles. If you ever decided to stalk her, you would probably see Jana watching shows like Law and Order, Criminal Minds, and the occasional Disney movie. She also loves to travel and hopes to set foot on all seven continent

Paul Awdeh, ’23

Paul likes to spend his free time reading, watching Netflix, and collecting the occasional snowglobe. As a chronic worrier, he’ll often be found worrying about a test date that doesn’t seem to exist. Nevertheless, when not focusing on schoolwork he also enjoys trying different baked cakes (preferably chocolate).

Joanne Zhang, ’25

Often found in the early morning playing piano in the practice rooms, much of Joanne’s work agenda consists of either arguing with peers over classical music, or listening to it whilst blazing through edifice after edifice of essays and news articles to finish. From the piano works of Ravel, to the orchestral concertos of Rachmaninoff, to the albums of Radiohead, to the discography of Lorde, Joanne is all over the place emotionally, as well as physically. Always having something to work on, her efforts are supported purely by the overconsumption of Yakults.

Asia Foland, ’25

Asia loves to read, listen to all kinds of music, and bake. If she could have her wishes granted, she would have a consistent sleep schedule, an endless supply of almond butter (which is surpassingly better than peanut butter), and perfect pitch. Asia loves writing, which can be seen through her multiple groundbreaking and revolutionary half- finished “novels” from third grade, and she hopes to write even more this year!

Denise Pan, ’25

Denise is an avid tennis player, underground music enjoyer, brownie critic, violin enthusiast and an above average artist. If you ever want to strike a conversation with her, bring up Swedish artists Bladee or Ecco2k or art collective Drain Gang. As a professional plant mom, she enjoys watching her pothos cuttings propagate and her avocado plant grow from its pit.
