Alia Arafeh – Opinion Editor

Yes, Alia Arafeh still drinks copious amounts of coffee, and yes, she has rewatched BoJack Horseman and frequently fights the urge to watch it a third time. Acquiring new skills during the pandemic, Arafeh is now a self-proclaimed movie critic, but her critiques usually consist of disagreeing with rotten tomatoes’ critics, attacking A24 films, and insisting that the best movie ever made is Shrek. Avoid asking where she’s applying or what classes she’s taking this year; you’ll get an answer, but only after she goes on countless tangents about College Board and mentions, more than once, that college is a scam. As the opinion editor this year, Arafeh plans to turn those tangents into written words.
