MEET THE TEAM

Foster H

Editor in Chief

Hey, I’m Foster, a Senior and Country Day lifer. Riley and I are the Editor in Chiefs of The Hook this year and are looking forward to it! I'm also continuing my role as Web Editor for The Hook, where I work with my fellow editors to create each edition by building The Hook’s website. I believe that The Hook plays a vital role here at Country Day by serving as a voice for inspired students to demonstrate their knowledge and inform the Country Day community. I’m a political enthusiast, the co-founder of Naturalize Charlotte, and a photographer. In my free time, I love to surf, trail run, and play soccer. 

Charlotte V

Managing Editor

Hey world! My name is Charlotte and I'm a Senior. I don’t know how you can get to know me in this blurb, so I'm just going to go with Forrest Gump and tell you about my shoes. I have three pairs of crocs and about five pairs of sequin-covered shoes--- the pink Heelys are my favorites. Hopefully that helps and I'll also tell you that I'm an ex-vegetarian. After four years of suffering, I ate a chicken nugget last summer and my world has changed immensely. I average about two cheeseburgers a week if I'm going to be honest… The Hook to me is an open space for everyone to feel safe sharing their own views. I encourage everyone to submit!!!!

Ellie D

Multimedia Editor

Hey guys, I’m Ellie and I'm a Junior! This year, I’ll be the multi-media manager, which focuses on the photographic side of The Hook. I also run The Hook Instagram, so make sure to follow us :) To let you know a little about who I am, I’m a strong believer in reading books more than once, and I always read a page in the middle of the book before I buy it. Books btw, are always 100% better than the movie, I promise. The Hook is not only for writing, but also for photography, media arts, and allows you to explore the unique voices of our student body. For those of you who may be hesitant in submitting your work, The Hook is here to be your creative outlet, and know that your work is valued by not just The Hook Team, but the student body. We hope you love The Hook as much as we do… enjoy!

Riley O

Editor in Chief

Hey! I'm Riley, and I'm an IB Senior, cheerleader, and Co-Editor in Chief with Foster! You can usually find me ruining a perfect cup of coffee with an extreme amount of cream and sugar. I'm a firm believer that there's nothing the right song can't fix, and I'm always open to new music suggestions! I'm passionate about travel, and I plan to see as much of the world as I possibly can. As someone who has an opinion on everything ranging from politics to conspiracy theories (I could talk for hours), I love that The Hook is a place where you're encouraged to share your views on anything and everything. I encourage everyone to submit to The Hook and let your voice be heard! 

Lilah P

Copy Editor

Hey Pals! I'm Lilah and I am proudly serving as Copy Editor for The Hook. I'm a shameless Raisin Bran eater, Broadway Junkie, Zumba lover, Jack Johnson groupie, and shmoozer (I can and will talk your ear off- be warned). I'm not even going to pretend I don't love Membean, and if you do too The Hook is a great place to drop some of those new fancy vocab words. The Hook gives the perfect opportunity to zoom out of your friend group or even grade, and connect to the larger Country Day community. It’s a great platform to hear about the opinions and experiences of someone you don't usually talk to, or to laugh at a dumb satire so bazaar you’re not sure you are laughing for the right reasons. So read, or write, or just laugh, but no matter what - you will undeniably and unapologetically get hooked:)!
