Annette Suk, Business Manager

As a senior, Annette is in her fourth and final year of journalism. It is also her first year as a Business Manager. Annette is a very excited FAME leader and will help out the community in NHS. Annette loves to bother her friends in her free time and is always prepared with a random rant.  She loves taking breaks and tends to make her life harder by getting distracted over the smallest items in her room while doing homework. Annette appreciates a good break but she can also get extremely serious at the task at hand and strives to present her best work. Annette finally chose to major in Psychology after having no clue what she wanted to do for the past three years.
