• About Sara Zakaria

    Sara Zakaria, currently freshman at Malden High School, joined the Blue and Gold because of her passion and devotion for writing. Zakaria found out about the class in middle school, and thought it was the perfect opportunity to use the writing skills she possesses and get them published in the process. Her favorite subject is English, considering the writing, and her least is math. Although High School is going to take some time, she announces that she can get used to it, “it’s better than middle school” Zakaria says. Her hobbies include listening to music, especially her favorite artist: Joe Strummer, and watching movies such as Trainspotting. Other hobbies include swimming and reading books. She has one older brother and desires to have a cat. Zakaria knows some people already, but is enthusiastic to meet others and make new friends. In hopes to improve her writing skills, Zakaria is looking forward to getting her work published through the help of the Blue and Gold.
