My name is Karis Chen, and I’m a sophomore at Bellaire High School. I serve as the News Editor for my school’s newspaper and am also a member of the varsity volleyball, varsity tennis, and debate teams. Outside of school, I love everything sports, especially the Chicago Cubs. I enjoy traveling and have visited thirty-one national parks across the country (and counting!). I also have two younger brothers and two dogs. I'm excited to be a part of the Buzz team and cannot wait to further develop my passion for journalism.
