Gracie Durzo is a junior at NASH. This is her first year partaking in Journalism and she is very excited to begin a new chapter in her high school journey. She decided to take journalism because she wanted to put her writing skills into greater use beyond English essays. Gracie also participates in the NA musicals and is a past actress of the NAI plays. Outside of Journalism and extracurricular activities, she enjoys going out with her friends and spending time with her family.
