Saba Nia

Saba Nia is a student journalist on the Los Angeles Times Student Advisory Board and loves all things related to writing and self-expression. Due to her boundless curiosity and debilitating lack of time management, Saba has been involved in nearly every single publication (12 out of 13!) that exists at her school, Harvard-Westlake, and currently serves as an editor for her newspaper and literary magazine. When she is not immersing herself in writing, Saba likes to swim, read, write, draw, and – when she gets the chance – sleep. She is a member of her school's community service organization, Community Council, and is responsible for planning and coordinating all outreach opportunities. Saba is immensely fascinated with the world and how people interact, and is hoping to combine her love of community service with biopsychology and writing in the future.
