Charley Sarmiento, Editor-in-Chief

Charley Sarmiento is a junior at South Forsyth High School, and this is her second year writing for The Bird Feed. She is so excited to be coming back as the Editor-in-Chief, and even more thrilled to make amazing memories with the staff. Sarmiento is more than ready to continue exploring the vast world of topics to write about and developing her skills, especially in videography and photography. You will most likely find her binge-watching shows/movies, reading books, or drawing. No doubt she will usually be procrastinating or sleeping. No matter what she’s doing, she enjoys listening to music, and you’ll probably even catch her singing her heart out… she may not be good at singing but she tries. Although she loves science, she hasn’t decided on her career path yet, so she spends a lot of time exploring different interests. She adores talking to new people and making new friends, so don’t be scared to say hello!
