Amber Holt is a sophomore and loves to travel the world. This is her first year as part of the Wingspan staff. She competed in UIL Journalism last year and hopes to return to the competition this year.

She is a Slytherin (Potterhead always), and is joining the cake decorating club and the creative writing club this year. If you ever say Twilight is better than Harry Potter then you are not allowed to be around her anymore. She enjoys staying awake until one in the morning and on the weekend sleeps until one in the afternoon. Her music taste ranges from Sleeping with Sirens to the Eagles. On long road trips her parents used to play a lot of older music.


Her favorite thing in the world would be to be able to travel around the world for a living. If she could chose to be anyone else for a day she would be Emma Watson (that woman is fantastic). She is so excited to be apart of the Wingspan team and is hopefully going to be on the staff for her whole high school career.
