Isabella Villalobos, Headlines Reporter

Isabella Villalobos is a senior, and this is her first year as a headlines writer for newspaper. She is a member of the DECA business club, OLAS Hispanic club, and Eco-Club at the school. When she’s not participating in school activities, you will commonly find her nose buried in a Vogue magazine looking for outfit inspiration. In the future, she hopes to tour and visit as many countries as she can, and have a closet five times the size she has now.
