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!


Abby Baron, ’22

Abby likes to spend her free time running, painting, reading, and hanging out with her friends.  She loves advertising and the visual arts so Red Ink was right up her alley.  If given the opportunity Abby would love to travel to Ireland, Japan, and Germany.

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 continents.

Leigh Einbinder, ‘22

Leigh spends her time running, doodling on things that are not meant to be doodled on, and making terrible puns. You’re likely to find her drinking her 12th cup of tea, wearing the fluffiest sweatshirt possible. She hopes this year is going to be inkredible.

Chiara Martello, ’22

Chiara likes to spend her free time taking photos, drawing, singing, and reading. Chiara loves exploring new places and wants to travel to Germany soon. To relax, Chiara likes to watch shows like The Queen’s Gambit and New Girl with her family. She loves being a part of Red Ink because of her interests in art, writing, and advertising.

Emma Auth, ’23

Emma’s family claims she was born in the wrong century, as she likes music from before 2000, sends physical letters and refuses to read ebooks. She is constantly baking and thinking about food, and is a firm believer in cake for every occasion. Besides her food obsession, Emma loves reading, doing yoga, snarky comments and laughing at sitcoms.

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).

Tyler Dravenstott, ’23

Tyler enjoys long runs in the fall while training for cross country meets, and skiing in the winter.  He will often play video games with friends.  He loves traveling and has lived in 6 different places.  As a procrastinator, he will always be up on sunday night finishing his homework.

James Iorio, ’23

James loves to enjoy the simple things in life with his friends and siblings. In his free time, which he never gets, he likes to read, run, build, hang out with friends, and ponder the implications of the human condition and the infinitely expanding possibilities the future holds while avoiding immense existential dread at these thoughts.

Griffin Vella, ’23

Griffin is 15 year-old Student at Wellesley High School who likes to spend his time going on runs with friends, coding fun projects, or playing video games. He was born and raised in London until about 3 years ago and has a seemingly unfounded obsession with great apes.
