“Giving up jazz band for Wolfpacket better be worth it.” Nina Wu is a sophomore, musician, former member of WWD (Worldwide Domination!!) and now, a first year reporter at Wolfpacket. Wu is looking forward to cramming articles and hopefully passing her Spanish class. Wu is also obsessed with cats– although she does not have one of her own, she cannot live without them. She is also an avid member of the CHS Speech and Debate team, President of Project Keynote, and Vice President of Legion of Voters. She is looking forward to a great first year at Wolfpacket. Contact her at [email protected].
