• About Christina Appignani

    Christina is a junior and this is her second year as part of the Blue and Gold team. She is currently a lead reporter. She says she looks “forward to mentoring the new reporters and meeting the diverse staff this year”. While she describes herself as quiet and reserved, she is very outgoing and hates staying at home. One of her favorite hobbies is reading comic books. Her favorite genre of music is alternative and she enjoys listening to bands such as Twenty-One Pilots, All Time Low, 5 Seconds of Summer, Walk the Moon, and Grouplove. Her favorite song is Fifteen by Taylor Swift, but she doesn’t listen to her as much, however, her favorite song lyric “I’ve never heard silence quite this loud” is also by Taylor Swift. Some of her favorite movies are Captain America: Civil War, The Parent Trap, 16 Candles, and Nerve. Game of Thrones, Pretty Little Liars, Once Upon A Time, and Daredevil are a few of her favorite TV shows. She is a very avid fan of Bubble Milk Tea, and while her favorite food by far is ziti with chicken and broccoli, she admits that Chinese is a close second. This summer she taught Algebra and Geometry in the Summer School program which was a fun experience. Some places she wishes to visit are New York City, Disney World, San Diego Comic Con, Boston Comic Con, and Italy. Her favorite quote is “In the end, we only regret the chances we didn’t take.” -Anonymous
