Lamplighter Media Productions

Sadie Bograd
Hi! I’m Sadie Bograd, and I’m a senior at Dunbar. This is my second year on Lamplighter staff. I’m now one of the program’s Editors-in-Chief. Along with Brooke Abell, I lead our writing, photography, and website. This year, I hope we can produce consistently high-quality reporting that keeps our readership informed and engaged.

When I’m not writing or editing articles, I love reading The New Yorker, listening to podcasts while I walk my dog, and baking gluten-free desserts (I make a mean plum crumble). I’m also part of Dunbar’s speech and debate team. 

I hope you enjoy what our team creates!

Sadie Bograd, Writing Editor in Chief
