In her fourth year as a Chatterbox staff member, Kimaya Mundhe, ‘25, is excited to work as the Managing Editor of Viewpoints. This year she hopes to help her sections produce accurate, high-quality content that generates conversation in our school community. 

Mundhe was previously a Features Writer, Features Section Editor and Managing Editor of Current Events. Some of her favorite Chatterbox memories include interviewing Mayor Aftab Pureval and attending the National Fall Journalism Convention in St. Louis. 

She is also President of FBLA (Future Business Leaders of America), a representative on the Diversity Equity and Inclusion Council, a member of the Superintendent's Student Leadership Council and a Sources of Strength peer leader. 

When she is not taking part in any of those activities, you can usually find her reading the news, lifting weights, playing the Wordle, practicing photography or watching movies.
