The Shield Online

Alysa Spiro
This is sophomore Alysa Spiro’s first year on The Shield staff. Alysa loves reading, music (especially Bon Iver), dancing and hanging out with goofy people. You may have seen Alysa in "A Christmas Carol" and "Matilda" at ZACH Theatre’s mainstage last year. Alysa doesn’t exactly know what she wants to study in college, however, political science, english and neuroscience are all possibilities. Alysa would like to thank The Atlantic for making her realize non-fiction and news stories can be interesting and Mr. Winter for teaching her just about everything she knows about journalism.
