Introducing the 2015-2016 Blog Squad!
Posted 10/14/2015 12:59PM


Hey, my name is Alisa and I'm a junior at Josephinum. I have been a JAC member, stagehand for school theatre productions, and student blogger ever since I was a Freshman. In my free time, I enjoy drawing, painting, caring for plants, and doing service. My favorite subject is history, and one interesting fact about me is that I always keep my hair in a bun, because I have crazy curly hair. I'm looking forward to writing this year!

Emily P.:

Hi! My name is Emily Pfeiffer, and I am one of the Blog Squad members here at Josephinum. I am a junior who just transferred in this year from a school in Virginia. I am involved in a bunch of clubs at the Jo (JAMs, JACs, Dance Team, Debate Team, Creative Writing, Fitness Club, Club of Social Action and the Lexus EcoChallenge) so you will probably see me around. If you ever have any questions about any of these clubs, feel free to ask! I am so excited to be able to share the school's opinions and post what you guys want to see online. Outside of school, I volunteer and enjoy reading, playing guitar, and trying different crafts. One thing many people don't know about me is that I used to live overseas when I was younger in Malaysia. Once again, I look forward to writing all about the Jo for you guys!


My name is Gabrielle Sianez, but I prefer to be called Gabby. I'm a 10th grader here at Josephinum and transferred from Trinity High School, so this is my first year here at the Jo. I play volleyball and enjoy singing. A fun fact about me is that I'm a huge Taylor Swift fan and she's actually who I went to see for my first concert. As part of the Blog Squad I will be, along with the other members, in charge of writing articles for the blog.


My name is Chelsea and I'm starting my first year here at Josephinum Academy. I have A's in all my classes, but I am especially good in math, biology, Shakespeare and literature. Other than studying, I love to listening to French videos, playing piano in JAMs, reading, and jogging. One interesting fact about me is that I am starting a Science Enthusiast Club with Ms. To and Ms. Johnson. Similarly, I am looking forward to the Lexus EcoChallenge I am planning to participate in. I am also excited to be on the Blog Squad and learn more about the Josephinum Academy.


Hey! My name is Valentina and I'm new to Josephinum this year. A fun fact about me is that I love taking pictures, going to concerts and I love animals. I am so excited to learn more about the school through the Blog Squad.

Emily M.:

My name is Emily and I'm one of this year's Blog Squad writers. I'm 15 years old and am a sophomore at the Jo. I'm involved in a wide variety of clubs including Dance Team, Spanish Club, Creative Writing, Debate and Mock Trial, and the Club of Social Action. A fun fact about me is that I've been dancing since I was two and a half!


Hey there! My name is Mariah and I'm super excited to be able to write articles for the school's blog this year! In my last three years here I've taken part of many of the leadership opportunities the Jo provides and have become much more confident. I'm apart of 10 clubs/sports ranging from Speech and Debate to Yearbook to Volleyball. A fun fact about me is I'm currently learning American Sign Language! I'm so excited for what the rest of this year holds. Email me if you have any fun ideas for things we should write about!
