SJ O’Connor is currently a senior at Pelham Memorial High School and joined The Pel Mel her sophomore year. This is her third year on the paper, where she previously held the position of Co-News Editor. Outside of journalism, SJ enjoys reading author Jandy Nelson, playing with her dog, and watching her favorite movie, The Parent Trap. SJ’s biggest role model is Marcus Eriksen, an environmental scientist studying microplastic pollution. Not only is she interested in English, but also is very passionate about studying science.
