Simra Waheed, Managing Editor

Simra Waheed is a junior at South Forsyth High School and is excited to write again for a second year as the Managing Editor of the BirdFeed! Simra loves to write, discuss and research current events, and read (sometimes.) She really enjoys baking (especially banana bread!), occasional rock climbing, ziplining, trekking, traveling (especially road trips) and going on roller coasters! But more than anything she loves to write! She particularly enjoys writing poetry, research-based nonfiction, fiction writing, and pretty much anything except horror! Simra loves meeting new people, talking about literally anything, and learning new things!
