Bella Angell, Editor-in-Chief

Bella Angell is entering her fourth and final year of writing for the Raider Wire and is ready to see where her words will take her. She wants to major in marketing and minor in creative writing in college, and she enjoys reading books while listening to her heavy metal playlist (which has actually gained a wider variety of songs including 80s music, Hamilton and the Love, Simon soundtrack.) She loves going to book festivals to meet authors such as Becky Albertalli, Adam Silvera, Angie Thomas, Veronica Roth, Cassandra Clare and more! She is a DECA officer and participates in many different clubs such as Science Ambassadors, Key Club, Beta Club as well as many honor societies in addition to the Raider Wire. Outside of school, you can find her at a Barnes and Noble, at an archery tournament or volunteering. She is ready to take on senior year and her last year on the school newspaper.
