WA Ghostwriter

Varshini Ramanathan
I am a WA senior who has been on the Ghostwriter staff since freshman year, first as a staff writer, then as Sports Editor, then as Co-Managing Editor, and finally as the Editor-in-Chief. I enjoy taking photos and writing feature articles for the paper, and in my free time, I like to read and play the piano.
