Drops of Ink

Roqaya Elmenshawy, Staff Member

Hi, my name is Roqaya, and I’m a sophomore. This is my first year on staff. In school, I’m involved in badminton, Interact, Best Buddies, Student Council Elect, Principal's Advisory Board, and Muslim Student Association. Outside of school, I enjoy hanging out with my friends, cooking, watching movies, and working out.
