Ella Castellano, Senior Staff Writer

Ella Castellano is a senior first year staff writer for Achona.  She is a Jesuit cheer captain and a captain of the Academy's lacrosse team.  Her favorite shows are "Euphoria" and "The Bachelor".  Her favorite subject in school is english because she loves to write.  She wants to go either Florida State or University of Georgia.  She goes to the gym almost every day, spends a lot of time out with her friends, and loves listening to music.  A fun fact about Ella is that she knows almost every lyric. Castellano has lived in Tampa her entire life so the move to a new city for college is going to be very different for her.  When Castellano graduates Academy this year she wants to travel  before she has to start her life somewhere new. Castellano is excited for all the senior privileges, such as the senior lounge, senior skip day, senior prank day, and even graduation once the school year is over.

“I think the ban is a bad idea. Although teens vaping is a big issue, there are people who actually use the flavored e-cigarettes to help their addiction. If they ban all flavors other than tobacco, I feel like people will begin to turn back to cigarettes, which is ultimately worse,” said Kate Cohen (‘21).
