Hi, I'm Madaket Chiarieri! I am one of the three editors in chief of The Oracle this year, which means I run the paper! In past years, I was the assistant sports editor and a staff reporter. I play lacrosse and manage the football team at school, and I am an Irish dancer outside of school. Fun fact: I placed 46th at the World Championships of Irish dance.
