This is my first year working with 42Fifty, and I hope to make it a great one. I have strongly enjoyed writing ever since I was in elementary school. Throughout my school years, I would get so excited to write whenever I had the chance. I am now a junior in high school, and I have found a great outlet for my writing with 42Fifty. I really enjoy watching movies and playing music in my free time. I play the drums in a rock band, as well as take part in Oswego High School’s drama productions. With interests like these, I have the knowledge to be a strong Entertainment Co-Editor. I hope I can bring a lot to 42Fifty’s table during my first year.

Not only does this club serve as a great place for LGBTQ+ students to make friends, but it is also a club where the history of LGBTQ+ history and awareness is discussed. Most importantly, it is a safe space for all students to show their “true colors” and feel comfortable for who they are.

Adam Sandler’s recent outing in the Safdie Brothers’s new thriller “Uncut Gems” provides Sandler with an outlet for his dramatic chops, and two new brilliant filmmakers to the world. Hear 42Fifty Editors Jeremy Davis and Charlie Recchia discuss their thoughts on the film in this latest episode of "Pretentious."
