Ellaheh "Ella" Gohari

Ellaheh "Ella" Gohari has 36 articles published.

As a sophomore, Ella Gohari is entering her second year on the Patriot Post staff as the co-Editor-in-Chief for the print newsmagazine. A lover of words, Ella spends much of her time writing, whether it be an article, poem, short story or science research paper. She often writes while listening (and singing her heart out) to music, and is particularly fond of rock bands like Metallica, AC/DC and Led Zeppelin. Her ultimate favorite; however, is Queen. Juggling many interests at once, she has been a science researcher with Mrs. Joykutty since 6th grade, and is now a part of the Sigma Xi Science Society. On the weekends, she volunteers with Village Book Builders and OTTER to teach underprivileged children in Florida and around the world. She is excited to co-lead the newsmagazine and can’t wait to see where the year goes.

Boosting the booster shot campaign

With COVID cases waning, people nationwide are returning to “normal.” Despite the COVID situation seemingly improving, the virus remains a deadly threat that takes the lives of thousands of people daily. Booster shots have been lauded as a way to “boost” resistance to the virus, but with the risk of over-activating the immune system, the question remains: how effective are they?
