As a hobby, I enjoy reading and writing. I write primarily short stories and occasionally delve into poetry, and a few of of my favorite books belong to the Harry Potter and Hunger Games series.

Tower Review Staff: 2010-2011


Pat (Senior)

I really like sports and music.   And to be completely honest, I’m kind of a big deal.

Annie (Senior)

I like being outdoors, eating food, and not being bored.  I dislike waiting in line, and anything else that requires extensive amounts of patience.

Nick L. (Senior)

I’m a local Volunteer Firefighter.  I’m a senior at RFH and plan to go off to college to better my firefighting career.  I want to be fire chief some day and also become a driver of the department’s fire truck.  I am very friendly and am always willing to go the extra mile for a friend.

Mike (Senior)

Peter (Junior)

I am a writer for the Tower Review.  I am also a cross country runner and rail fan.  I hope you enjoy my pieces!

Caleigh (Sophomore)

My interests are running, recycling, petting kittens, reading to the blind, saving the world, and being awkward!  My biggest fears are hide and go seek, being buried alive, and snakes.  I love watching the sunset on the ocean and eating a nice steak.  My biggest pet peeve is rude people.  D:<

Alyson (Sophomore)

Writing has, and always will be, an interest of mine.  My absolute favorite book is October Sky by Homer Hickam.  I’m always listening to music and drawing all over my hands.  There’s usually not a day that I don’t hang out with my friends.  I’m obsessed with Eminem and Mika; weird combination.  I love running, rowing, long drives, cats, Coca-Cola, Stephanie Meyer, and big sweatshirts.  I hate the beach, flower patterns, and the color pink.  And i have a weird interest in the history of Egypt.

Elsa (Sophomore)

Kelsey (Freshman)

Dislikes:  bullies, wasps, jelly beans, Judas

Elizabeth (Senior)

My interests include sunsets, long walks on the beach, writing, and running track. I spend my summers teaching sailing at River Rats in Fair Haven. When I’m not on the river, I’m at the beach. I also like photography and singing. I’m excited about college next year; I’ve been counting down the days to graduation since September 3rd!

Jennifer (Senior)
Position:  Writer/Editor for the Tower Review
Location: New Jersey
Likes:  writing articles for the Tower Review, reading McSweeney’s and fan fiction, acting
Dislikes: negative feedback

Quinny (Senior)
My name is Quinny, a sports writer for the Tower Review.  I play hockey for the school team.  This is my fourth year on the team, and it’s one of my favorite activities.  I was born in New York City but have lived near RFH ever since I was three.  I plan to attend a liberal arts college this coming fall, and I am anxious to see where I end up.

Samantha (Senior)
I love to make lists (because I get distracted all the time), travel (although lately I rarely get the chance to), swim in the ocean, and go running. And write, of course.  I’m anticipating my college acceptances and am ready to experience someplace new, although I don’t know where that will be yet, or what I will be majoring in…

MacKenzie (Senior)
I am a writer for the School Events section of the Tower Review.  I play lacrosse and love being a member of the RFH team.  In college, I plan on majoring in Middle Eastern Studies/Women’s Rights.

Stephanie (Senior)

Sign: Aries
Favorite Classes: 5th Period Lunch
Likes: Origami, post-it notes, pens, thinking, laughing, being weird.
Dislikes: Normal people, Styrofoam, pencils, and AM Radio.

Torri (Senior)
I guess I’d consider myself to be a creative person, which explains my love of writing. I’d boast of my athletic achievements but unfortunately don’t have many (though I played lacrosse for the first time EVER on the school team last year…*cough JV cough*) – instead I can pride myself on being a movie fanatic, avid baker and decently good listener. I’m entirely disorganized, and always late for everything, but I don’t think I’d have it any other way.  In the future I see myself doing something that feels truly fulfilling and satisfying, and something that helps people…

Hillary (Junior)
Name: Hillary
Grade: Junior
Likes: Acting, singing, dancing, writing, reading, listening to music, shows about paranormal ghost hunters, hanging out with my friends, and travel

Mark (Junior)
I play baseball and basketball.
My favorite sports teams are the Knicks, Jets, and Yankees.
My favorite topic to write about is sports and that is what I will focus on in the Tower Review.

Susanne (Junior)
I enjoy listening to music of all sorts (more specifically hard rock or metal). I love playing tennis and hanging with my friends. I also love traveling to the city and exploring and shopping. I plan to pursue journalism in college and to hopefully turn it into a career.

Sarah (Sophomore)
I’ve grown up near RFH, and now I’m treasurer of the sophomore student government, played field hockey freshman year and this fall, and participate in the Junior Cancer Society and Ronald McDonald Junior Board. In my spare time, I love spending time with my friends, listening to music, writing, and going to the beach and New York City. Since I have several interests, there are many things I want to do when I get older. I hope to be involved with journalism, but I’m also interested in science, so I hope to find a profession that incorporates both.

Dakota (Sophomore)
I am a new student this year at RFH.  I play baseball, and enjoy watching sports. I love listening to music, especially 60’s and 70’s bands (such as the Beatles, the Stones, the Doors, Bob Dylan, etc.).  I love to write for school and in my spare time, and one day hope to be a journalist for the New York Times.

Taylor (Sophomore)
Name: Taylor
Likes: leaves changing in the fall, music, getting bundled up when it’s cold out, bright colors, seasonal lattes, smiling and laughing, trying to bake, and always dressing up for Halloween.
Dislikes: deadlines, small spaces, and pens running out of ink.

Sophia (Sophomore)
I am very interested in writing, which is why I am a member of the Tower Review. I have been swimming for many years, and I am currently on the high school team. My family is big and confusing, but they are all very important to me! In my spare time I like to spend it with my friends and family, listen to music, and read. I also love to travel and try new things! I enjoy going to into the city or lazy days at the beach.

    I took time and really read this entire edition- including all the bios. I am a RHS graduate- many years ago, and after my degree, traveling the world, getting married and settling into the great Pacific Northwest i come to realize how truly great I had things in Rumson, NJ. You all are great, bright lights who will go forth someday, and I hope you realize how impressed I am by you!
