Laasya Mamidipalli
Hi, my name is Laasya! This is my third year on the HiLite staff and I'm working as the audience engagement editor to better understand the readership of the HiLite. In past years I have been a feature editor and a copy editor. Outside of school, you can find me volunteering, spending time with my little brother or taking notes for fun :)
