Amy Chong
Matt Kettmann

Amy Chong may have already set a record as being one of The Indy‘s longest-serving internsshe’s been with the paper off and on since last Januarybut now she’s about to do what no one’s ever done for us: deliver an online weekly column about life as a high school senior at Santa Barbara High called “The Senior File.” A Santa Barbara native whose dad also went to SBHS, Chong plays the flute in the school band, likes to write “about life,” and is reading Philip Pullman’s His Dark MaterÂ-ials trilogy in her spare time. Her introductory column kicks off this week, and next week, she’ll have an interview with new principal Mark Capritto. In the future, she hopes to cover “issues that teenagers face,” such as eating disorders, drugs and alcohol, and socioeconomic differences. So stop by independent.com/theseniorfile every Thursday to see what’s up with today’s seniors
