Maria Ruiz, Staff Writer

Salutations! I am Maria Ruiz. I am in band and on the golf team. This is my second year on staff and I am a junior this year. I enjoy painting, reading, and writing. I love my pets: my fish, cat, and parrot.

This year I hope to contribute enjoyable and informative content to The Owl newspaper!
