Kassem Ossman, Editor-in-Chief

Kassem Ossman is a Senior at DGS. This is Ossman’s second year on the Blueprint staff as an Editor-In-Chief. When he’s not writing, he’s a competitor for the DGS speech team, a member for the Masque and Gavel club and sings for the DGS choirs. Ossman is also the Vice-President of the Masque and Gavel club at DGS.

When Ossman does have free time he spends it with his friends and family, exploring new music, practicing his artistic flair and expressing himself through his fashion and friendly, outgoing personality. Ossman's plans after high school are to study Journalism.

Ossman loves the thrill of seeking a story and through his writing he hopes to amplify the voices of others who usually go unheard.
