Jess Daninhirsch, Photography Editor

Following her stint as the Co-Editor-in-Chief of the NAEye sophomore year and Junior Photography Editor last year for the Uproar, Jess Daninhirsch is ecstatic about being the Photography Editor and a staff writer this year on The Uproar. Jess dreams of becoming a journalist and a photographer one day and documenting the world. Outside of school, Jess actively participates in BBYO, an international Jewish teen movement (at which she is a correspondent for their international newsletter, The Shofar), and loves to contribute to her Jewish community. She enjoys making art, playing music, dancing, and playing with her two dogs.
