Ella Spungen is currently a senior at the Packer Collegiate Institute, and the Editor-in-Chief of the Packer Prism this year. This is Ella’s third year on the Prism, and previously she has been the copy editor and the content editor. She loves writing articles, and believes in the deep importance of journalism, especially today. Beyond the Prism, Ella is the Editor-in-Chief of PCI, Packer’s art and literary magazine, leader of Literary Club, and a member of the Student Faculty Judiciary Committee. Outside of school, she volunteers at the Max Rose congressional campaign and Red Hook Initiative, a nearby community-based nonprofit. She loves to scuba dive and look at amazing marine organisms, specifically sharks. It is her dream to dive with a whale shark, but in the meantime she just talks about them. (In the Spungen household, every week is shark week.) Ella can be reached at email@example.com.
