Marchisen wears her Taylor Swift t-shirt in anticipation for the re-release of 1989 (Taylor’s Version).

Senior Halle Marchisen is the social media manager for the Midtown girl’s basketball team as well as the Midtown Pickleball Club. She brought attention to the girl’s basketball Instagram her junior year, through fun graphics and interactive posts. Marchisen plans to do the same for the Pickleball Club’s Instagram as well.

“I enjoy making the posts and reaching new audiences through them,” Marchisen said. “It also serves as a fun creative outlet for myself. The pickleball Instagram has been really exciting because I was able to start the account and have watched it grow over the past couple of months.”

Outside of school, Marchisen is an avid Taylor Swift enthusiast and is eagerly awaiting the release of her recorded album, 1989 (Taylor’s version).

“The 1989 concert back in 2014 was the first concert I had ever been to,” Marchisen said. “Ever since I have not only been captivated by her music but her love for her fans.”
