The Rubicon

Diane Huang
As Diane Huang enters her senior year at St. Paul Academy and Summit School she also settles into a familiar, yet newly titled role as Director of RubicOnline. Diane has worked to improve The Rubicon’s online counterpart since her sophomore year and hopes to see a more dynamic and interactive website in the future. As her CMYK personality quiz reveals, she is a designer at heart, and would love the website to experiment more with infographics, video, and animation components. Diane will also take on the responsibilities of being tennis captain and co-leading the student group P.L.A.Y.

She can be reached at rubiconline.spa@gmail.com
