The Bruin Voice

Gabriella Backus
I'm interested in any type of art, so my hobby is creating art.  I'm the president of Red Cross and Art Club.  I've been in journalism for three years; my brother was the editor-in-chief when he was a senior, so I've followed in his footsteps.  I used to be involved in cross-country, but I quit my senior year to focus on more interesting things.


Gabriella Backus retires her role as Editor-in-Chief on Thursday, May 30, 2019, as she graduates from  Bear Creek.
