eSomethin Staff 2020-2021

Clara Burkin

Hey! My name is Clara Burkin. I’m a sophomore, and this is my second year on the eSomethin staff. I’m so excited to be back this year for all the new and exciting stories I’ll get to cover. I’m a thespian and a member of drama club. I was also on student council as a freshman as well as a part of ASL club. I hope to become a baker and own my own bakery someday. I have a tarantula named Aragog and I’m completely obsessed with arthropods of any kind, so lookout for any information on those! The 20/21 school year will sure be somethin’ to remember.


 Ari Collins

Hi, I’m Ari Collins and I am a freshman at Perrysburg High School. This is my first year as a member of eSomethin. I play tennis and I love art and music. I’m a poet and certified Edgar Allan Poe obsessor. When I’m not writing—well, that’s a hard one, I’m always writing afterall. Somethin’ about writing that I love is being able to write for myself as well as write for others which is why I’m so excited for my first year on the eSomethin staff!

 

 Tony Cox

Hi, I am Tony Cox, I’m a sophomore and this is my second year in eSomethin. I enjoy history and I read a lot of books—my favorite series being the Seven Realms. I’m out of things to say about myself, so… be safe, wear a mask, and have a great year!
