Four Profiles

The English House Gazette opens its fall 2012 season with four profiles.

Syndey Espinosa, whose beat is science, profiles a Bryn Mawr biology professor who has had a life-long fascination with leeches.  Yes, leeches.

Tianyuan Zhang, whose beat is culture shock, offers a profile of Sharon Bain, a Russian teacher who grew up experiencing immersion in different cultures, both in America and overseas.

Ariel Kraakman, who covers public art, tells of a Bryn Mawr student who has joined an international movement to anonymously leave small hearts with inspirational messages in random places.

Ivy Gray-Klein, who is covering art and culture, offers a profile of Katy Otto, the drummer of a local group called Trophy Wife.
