Emily Kohn is a juior who, so far, is loving high school. If you hear someone whistling, singing or humming down the halls, you will no doubt find her around the corner.

If you dare to bring up any of the following subjects in conversation, you will quickly regret your choice, as she has been known to expound on them for days at a time: Christmas, songs that get stuck in her head, pugs, her three little sisters (who never fail to annoy her), nail polish, clothes, speech and debate, or Christmas (yes, she even put it twice).

In addition to the newspaper, Emily participates on the Durham Academy speech and debate team and is the media/public relations officer of the Durham Youth Commission. Born in San Francisco, Emily spent most of her childhood in St. Louis and therefore laughs at her North Carolina friends when they complain that they are cold in the wintertime.
