The Octagon

Sahej Claire
Junior Sahej Claire prides herself on being (almost) unhealthily obsessed with books and reading even when she doesn’t have time. She enjoys rowing for Capital Crew’s Varsity Women as well as running the Design Thinking Club and Project Code. Sahej neglects her health when it comes to mac and cheese, and she is continually adding to her list of trip destinations, which currently numbers 62 cities. Contact at sclaire18@scdsstudent.org
