Gitanjali Raman, Online Managing Editor

Gitanjali Raman is a member of the senior class at St. Paul Academy and Summit School. Gitanjali is currently Online Managing Editor, and has served in the past as a Copy Editor, Feature Editor and Staff Writer. While Gitanjali loves journalism, she makes time for other hobbies as well, including Bharatanatyam, a south Indian classical dance, and karate - she’s only two belts away from a black belt. Gitanjali has been playing piano for the last seven years and is currently working on a song called “Impressions on Yellow” by Kevin Olson. Gitanjali's favorite part about The Rubicon is interacting with the community. This is her last year on The Rubicon; she hopes that this year The Rubicon will win the coveted Pacemaker Award.

Time is a crazy thing because it is both limited and endless. Use it to limit self-doubt, and maybe the amount of Netflix you watch, and to endlessly love the you that you are...because there is, and can only ever be, one you. So make it count, senior Minnie Arnold said in her speech.

Great moments, are born, from great opportunity. And that’s what we have here, tonight, boys. That’s what we earned here, tonight. One game. If we played ’em ten times, they might win nine. But not this game. Not tonight. Tonight, we skate with them. Tonight, we stay with them. And we shut them down because we can! Tonight, we are the greatest hockey team in the world, senior Alex Qin said in his speech.

It is something that exists in our own backyard. Segregation does not just pertain to the South and we fail to see that in every major city redlining results in urban civilization. Practically intentional. Let’s stop pretending that we can not see the rural white houses that fade to gray, broken down shambles after we simply cross an intersection, senior Vanessa Salverda said.

A lot of what we say is a cover up for what we actually want to say. We use euphemisms like this one to avoid talking about potentially dangerous topics and this obscures reality to the point that we don’t actually realize what our words mean. In this way language is no longer a tool for advancement; it simply become a way to avoid change, senior Nina Zietlow said.
