The Central Trend

Sarah Obermeyer

Sarah is a senior entering her second year writing on staff for The Central Trend. Sarah thinks her enthusiasm for writing sprouted from her love for reading that she has had since a young age. On top of writing, Sarah has a growing interest in photography and enjoys taking pictures at all sorts of different events. Sarah is also a varsity basketball player and she loves attending different high school sporting events. Besides sports and writing, Sarah is a music enthusiast. She loves going to concerts, singing, and playing guitar.


Favorite thing about being on staff: 


I love to expressing myself through writing and learning about new people involved in unique things.


Favorite type of story to write: 


Reviews and editorials


Favorite book and why: 


I love If You Feel Too Much by Jamie Tworkowski, I've read it so many times at this point I've lost count! I think it's my favorite because the style is so unique and you won't find stories like it anywhere else.


It's a Friday night and you will probably find Sarah doing: 


Either watching whatever sport is in season at the high school, going to a concert, or hanging out with friends.

Sarah Obermeyer, Managing Editor of Photography
