The Central Trend

Rowan Szpieg

Rowan Szpieg, Junior Writer

Rowan is entering her first year on The Central Trend as a junior writer. Her love of writing developed in recent years through expressive poetry. Although it is a hobby that assumes a bit of her time already, when she's not sitting back with a new writing piece on her computer, you can find her playing her guitar. Any spare time she has that's not occupied with family or friends is spent learning to play new songs. She also loves to spend her nights under the stars around a bonfire in the summer and laughing too much playing board games in the winter. Rowan is always up for a movie night as a way to share her interest in film. When she's not watching a movie, she has Friends playing in the background on every occasion.


Comfort movie: The Proposal

Favorite time of the year: When Christmas music starts to play

Favorite book: Tuesdays With Morrie by Mitch Albom

Favorite song to play on guitar: Don't Think Twice, It's All Right by Bob Dylan

Has she shortened her watchlist of movies? Not at all! It's still over 300
