The Purbalite

Lena Barakat
Lena Barakat is a sports editor and this is her second year on the Purbalite. She likes listening to The Smiths, Amy Winehouse, and Talking Heads. When she isn’t trying to finish her homework without getting distracted or accidentally falling asleep, you can find running on the track and cuddling with Harnold (her cat that pukes every two seconds).
