Ayra Charania, Copy Editor

As a traveler of nearly every continent (sorry Antarctica) and speaker of four languages, Ayra Charania is a senior and joined staff this year, although she has had a love of writing for many years. Outside of newspaper, Ayra loves to play the violin, shop for heels so she can pretend she isn’t tiny at 5’2, and read. Her current Netflix addiction is Lucifer.
