Chloe Mintz, Editor-in-Chief

Chloe Mintz is an Academy senior, a third-year journalist, and Editor-in-chief of Achona. When she’s not playing lacrosse; cheerleading for Jesuit; or leading Well-Read Women, Chloe enjoys Pelotoning, reading, and watching foreign television. When she’s not participating in one of her many other activities, Chloe often indulges in Trader Joe’s Peanut Butter Protein Granola, which she often pairs with a Celcius energy drink. A need-to-know fact about this year’s Editor-in-chief is her love for replicating the vernacular of an elderly man through the use of phrases such as “oh fiddlesticks” and “fudge nuggets.”  Chloe has an affinity for English, as it is her favorite subject, and this love for literature stems from the opportunity to immerse herself in a new environment separate from her day-to-day stresses. This appreciation for English, as well as her interest in politics, has inspired her to pursue a career in journalism or foreign policy, preferably whilst attending Boston College, Dartmouth College, or Georgetown University.  This year, Chloe is excited to be accepted into one of her top colleges as well as making this year of Achona TBOY.
