Emara Sáez, Managing Editor

It is Emara’s second year on the Achona staff, and she is now the Managing Editor and runs the Twitter account. She enjoys writing articles, especially topics covering culture and politics, and she believes it is very important to stay up to date on the news. She encourages her peers to do the same. Outside of Achona, she has been an active participant on the Speech and Debate team since her freshman year as well as the social justice club since junior year, where she also manages its Instagram page. In the classroom, Emara has always challenged herself by taking Advanced Placement courses, such as AP Government and Politics, which she hopes will prepare her for further education at, preferably, a northeast liberal arts college where she will major in political science. After college, she hopes to become a lawyer specialized in either international or immigration law as she will then be able to continue to fight for social justice on behalf of her clients. Academics and extracurriculars aside, Emara loves to spend time with her family and friends, watch “Avatar” on Netflix, listen to the podcast “The Daily” from the New York Times, and baking cupcakes --- but baking cookies will forever be her downfall as a cook.
