New Chief Siegler likes Sarcasm and Sick Irony
 

My name is Emily Siegler and I’m Co-Editor-in-Chief of the UCHS Commander.  I have participated in journalism for four years, and have held multiple positions over the years, including Senior Editor of the Standley Middle School newspaper and Features Editor of The Commander this past year.  I’m looking forward to my junior year at UC High and dedicating much of my time to the paper.

I hope to make The Commander more interesting and appealing to a wider audience this year. Whether you're a high school student, parent, or faculty member, I believe it is crucial to know about the events, people, and issues in your community. We've switched up the layout and design of the newspaper this year, in hopes to move The Commander in a more modern, evolving direction. We also plan to broaden the range of issues, activities, and people covered in the newspaper this year, hoping to better represent the diverse UC High community.

When not writing or working on the paper, I love traveling (to places within or outside of the U.S.), playing the violin, running (when it’s not painful), sleeping, baking, laughing with friends, listening to various types of music, and going to TapEx and Starbucks.  I also enjoy using sarcasm and finding the sick irony of situations.  When I get a chance I like catching up on shows such as Grey's Anatomy, New Girl, and Saturday Night Live, and pondering the meaning of life.

I’m always looking for input and feedback about The Commander. I would love to hear your questions or feedback about any aspect of the paper; please come find me in Room 226 during fourth period to chat.
