Ayelet Prottas, Photo Editor

Hey guys!! I’m Ayelet :) I am a Junior and I am a photo editor for Echo. I play softball, so you can usually find me on the field. When I have to relax, I am obsessed with eating sushi and playing with puppies. This year I am looking forward to becoming more involved in school culture.
