Poetry Out Loud occurs annually at Malden High. Of the people who won the class competition, only two from each period can move on to the finals. These are the finalists, and the scrap poem that was made. The finals will occur on Thursday, January 31st in the Jenkins Auditorium.
Senior Ana Pirosca returns to The Blue and Gold for her fourth year in the class as Editor and Chief. She originally joined the course for her interest in the news as she explains she always found it “interesting how journalism impacts the world” and recaps how her 7th grade guidance counselor informed her about the Newspaper. Pirosca was originally born in Cluj Napoca as she is fully Romanian. At the age of one she moved to Germany, then soon after moved to Kansas at the age of seven, then finally moved to Malden, Massachusetts where she currently resides and recently obtained her citizenship. Her friends describe her as being ambitious, organized, driven, and thoughtful. Pirosca takes an interest in poetry, as she explains her favorite authors are E. E. Cummings and Robert Frost. During her leisure time, she enjoys listening to post hardcore music, cooking italian food, and growing herbs and tomatoes in her garden. View all posts by Ana Pirosca
