Lindsay Cohen


Emma Kolb is a junior who has been going to American Heritage since kindergarten. Each year, she likes to try a new extracurricular and over the past few years, she grew an intense love for poetry and English of all sorts. Since she wanted to experiment with as many English-related activities as possible, she found the amazing elective, literary magazine. She also really loves acting, singing, and makeup.

When she’s not designing pages for the magazine, Lindsay is an active volunteer for the Big Brother Big Sister organization and a member of the Student Government.
