Portola Pilot

Maryam Shama
Maryam Shama is your 2018-19 Co-Editor-in-Chief! Having been Opinion Editor in the previous year, she is excited to contribute to the production in a different way and with a new perspective. When not working on the Pilot, Maryam spends her time cheering on the L.A. Kings and Dodgers, playing with her cat Mishmish, spending quality time with her friends, and working towards her goal of becoming a psychologist. She is looking forward to improving the Pilot as best as she can with the wonderful support of her fellow leadership team!
