“Humans of the Sacred Heart” – Jessica Thompson ’22

What have you learned from participating in the Perspectives literary magazine?

Perspectives has taught me so much over the last few years.  Not only has it helped with my writing and editing skills, but it has taught me how to work with a team and how to act as a leader.  It also has pushed me to do some more writing on my own.”

What is your favorite aspect of leading Perspectives this year?

“My favorite aspect of leading Perspectives this year has been showing the underclassmen how fun editing and writing can be, especially on the Perspectives team.  I hope to inspire them all to continue editing as part of our team as they grow in the Upper School.  I also love leading the raffles. They are such a fun way to accumulate more submissions while also giving out prizes.”

Why are writing and creative expression important for high school students?

“Writing and creative expression are so important for high schoolers because they provide an outlet for our imaginations and allow us to destress in a calming way.  For me, writing has always been an escape, and I think that the stress of high school can be super overwhelming which is why I turn to writing as a fun and relaxing way to ease my worries.”
