Hello! My name is Juliet Jefts, this is my first year on the Agora staff, though I’ve had a few pieces published with the paper last semester as free-lance.
I’m an Ida High School graduate, an alumni of the band, choir and theater programs.
I’ve joined the Agora hoping to find a direction to my career goal, but also because I enjoy writing and finding stories that people want to hear.
Outside of school my interests include books, movies, music, and theater.
My favorite book series is Harry Potter and I belong to the house Slytherin. I listen to all kinds of music but often find Broadway and Disney soundtracks spend the most time in my CD player. The Marvel Cinematic Universe are also the films on my TV screen the most.
Out of the 23 MCU films, my favorite trilogy is Captain America. The twists and struggles for the characters are the most relatable and have lessons that can be applied to life outside of a screen.
A fun fact about me is that I’m obsessed with penguins. My friends will tell you I don’t just love them, I AM one. They’re so cute and at one point I was a Zoo Pal to a penguin for five years running, I named him Stanley.
As I said before, I am excited to join the Agora in a more official way and hope I write at least one thing you all enjoy reading. “Now is the time to seize the day!” (Newsies)
