Ben Weiss is a junior perspectives writer for Metea Media. It will be his first year writing on staff. He's also involved with The Mane, Bass Chorus, and Metea's theater program. Ben's quite the workaholic. His poor social skills are only rivaled by his desperate need to be liked, along with other insecurities. But outside of his deeply hidden depression, Ben's a pretty meh dude. I wish he would stop quoting musical theater songs. I don't understand it and I don't give a crap!
