Kaleidoscope’s End of the Year Send Off

I am very thankful that I got to be the editor of our school’s literary arts magazine, the Kaleidoscope, this year. After COVID-19 hit the world and our community, the Kaleidoscope got put to a halt with its publishing and it was like it didn’t exist anymore. Returning to school as a senior in September 2021, I wanted to bring the Kaleidoscope back. Even though I am not the founder of the Kaleidoscope, as this magazine has been going on at West Linn for centuries, I felt like I brought the magazine back to life after the COVID-19 pandemic.

Being the Kaleidoscope editor at West Linn has greatly impacted my senior year in the best possible way. I have learned how to take initiative and how to be a leader. Even though I am sad to be leaving the magazine behind, I know that the new editors (Sienna Reiner, Cooper Jordan, Ava Sullivan, and Amelia Brown) will be able to take the same initiative that I had to keep the Kaleidoscope tradition going. I hope to become one of the editors of The Chrysalis, Willamette University’s Literary Arts Magazine, in the fall of 2022.
