Jean Sanders

I am a managing editor of the Chronicle, which means that I am responsible for helping to oversee all five sections of the paper. I used to layout for the Features sections, which was so fun because I loved combining my love for journalism and my love for design. I also enjoy writing pieces and getting to interview people to get all the sides of a story. My favorite part of the Chronicle is the fact that it feels like one big quirky family!

Outside of the Chronicle, my favorite academic class is English, I am an avid member of the HW chess club.

I’m Layla Moghavem, one of the Managing Editors on the Chronicle this year. As Managing Editor, I get to be a part of all aspects of the Chronicle, from the print issue to our online presence. I have loved getting to determine the broader goals of the paper, and I have taken pride in the kinds of stories we’ve published this year. The truth is hard to say sometimes, but I cannot be more proud of how we as a paper have diligently and thoroughly reported such controversial instances. I have written stories on the Honor Board and racial controversies, but I feel like my most valuable work is in working with our junior and sophomore staff members. Getting to know them and watch them grow has been a highlight of my Chronicle experience.

She is the co-founder of Project Girl to Girl, an organization with the goal of closing the gender gap in STEM through science workshops for elementary school girls, and a member of the varsity cheerleading team. Kim believes journalism to be a tool for advocating issues such as gender equality and exploring the ways in which students on campus are affected by their racial identities.

Hi, my name is Sophie Cohen and I am the Features Section Editor of the Chronicle. I am responsible for managing the Features section of the paper. For each issue, I plan and assign articles as well as the respective design for the page. I have been involved in journalism at Harvard-Westlake since the middle school. Before joining the Chronicle at the upper school, I was a writer for the spectrum. My favorite story that I have written was a feature that I wrote for the August 2016 issue about terrorism in Europe affecting student travels.
