Katia Anastas, Staff Reporter

Katia Anastas is a Copy Chief for ‘The Science Survey.' She is responsible for editing many of her peers’ articles for each issue of the newspaper. She loves that journalistic writing equally emphasizes creativity and truth, while allowing the world to be viewed from multiple lenses. Moreover, she believes that journalism has the unique ability to hold people in power accountable for their actions and highlight the experiences of marginalized groups. Thus, in her writing, Katia attempts to include diverse perspectives, investigate difficult topics, and forge a better future. Additionally, Katia appreciates photojournalism given that it personalizes stories and speaks to our emotions. Katia’s passion for politics, philosophy, and economics has fueled her love for debate. She currently serves as a Novice Director for the Public Forum Debate Team. Moreover, she is a member of the Current Events Forum and Secretary of the Foreign Film Appreciation Club. Outside of school, Katia spends a plethora of her free time writing short stories, poetry, and essays while studying texts by her favorite authors including Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Jeffrey Eugenides, Joan Didion, and Pablo Neruda. Her favorite book is ‘Middlesex’ by Jeffrey Eugenides. ‘One Hundred Years of Solitude’ by Gabriel Garcia Marquez is a close second. Additionally, Katia enjoys reading philosophy, and her favorite philosophical texts include ‘The Way of Chuang Tzu’ translated by Thomas Merton and ‘Meditations’ by Marcus Aurelius. Beyond books, she loves movies such as ‘Dead Poets Society,' ‘The Perks of Being a Wallflower,' and ‘Good Will Hunting.' While her interests remain diverse, Katia plans on studying political science, economics, and philosophy in college while also taking many classes in English literature, given that her overarching goal is to publish books and essay collections in the future. Additionally, Katia has developed a love for physics this year, a subject in which she may want to minor in, in college.
