Trinity Heard - Managing Editor

My name is Trinity Heard, I am a Senior at Oswego High School, and this is my second year writing for 42Fifty. I am very excited to continue working with the team and help other learn more about journalism. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with friends and family, baking, and editing. I also am a part of the Student Council as President and work as a crew member at Culvers. I look forward to being involved in 42Fifty as a managing editor for this year.

This Valentine’s Day, you may be asking yourself, “What else do I need to buy? I’ve already bought things for my partner and for myself.” Well, dear reader, there’s still something you probably haven’t put enough love into: your room. The humble abode at which you lay your head could have twice the good feels if you bought a little bit of love-themed decor.
