Uma Upamaka

Uma Upamaka, Writer

Uma Upamaka is a current senior at Francis Howell North and is a staffer on the Web staff. Within the past three years at FHN, Upamaka has been involved in various clubs and activities around the school, including golf, Speech and Debate, Mock Trial Model UN, and HOSA. These activities fostered a love for journalism and current events, leading her to be a writer on staff during her sophomore year. During this time, she wrote opinion pieces regarding politics and current events. Thus far, her proudest accomplishments have been qualifying for NSDA Nationals and HOSA Internationals during her junior year. Outside of school, she enjoys volunteering and spending time with her ten-pound Maltese, Snow. She hopes to be a doctor one day and volunteer with Doctors Without Borders.

A wall of painted bricks sits directly next to the entrance to the scene shop. These are arguably the most memory-filled part of the scene shop, as they were painted by seniors as far back as the late 80s. Every senior who has since passed through the drama room has painted a brick, and the bricks extend all the way to the very back of the shop.
