Grace Miller, Page Editor

Grace Miller is a senior at HHS and a Newsstreak Page Editor. She is an active participant in the HHS theater department. Some of her favorite things are puns, the phrase “oy vey”, calligraphy, the dust particles that get caught in light, the smell of books, her dog Emmett, fun socks, frozen mango, Hebrew, figure skating and random literary quotes. When she graduates, she plans to take a road trip across Europe and figure out what she wants to do after high school.
