My name is Alyson Podesta, and I will be writing the “Music” column. I’ve been singing as long as I can remember, and I’ve been lucky enough to have the opportunity to learn a few instruments. Music is a major part of my individual identity, and I’m excited to have the chance to write about and share music in this column. This column will be a place where student music can be displayed, but it also will be a venue for my individual writing on music, and displaying new songs and artists. Driftwood’s philosophy will also be upheld in this column: it will reflect the taste and opinions of the student body. This aligns with Driftwood’s overall goal of being a creative home for students at EWHS. I’m excited to be a part of this new project, and I’m grateful for a chance to show my musical identity within this column.
