Ariel Benjamin

Everyone knows Ariel Benjamin. And not just because of her amazing chapel talk, her position as an admission fellow for the past two years, or the fact that she has been on the Liu/Cheung stage acting or singing in almost every production for her entire Webb career. Everyone knows Ariel because she makes an active effort to know and care about everyone else — and maybe because she went viral on TikTok this year. Despite her rapidly increasing social media following, Ariel is still dedicated to her academic progress. She plans on attending Smith College and majoring in Religious Studies with a possible minor in Creative Writing. Although she is excited to pursue her studies, Ariel will cherish all her memories from Webb next year, from eating snow cones at Jubilee to getting stuck in the Live Oak Dam during her first triathlon. As Ariel explores the world outside Webb, she will face the challenge of getting to know and love a whole new group of people along the way, but with her fun-loving, outgoing personality, anything is possible.

Since Ariel is vaguely TikTok famous, it’s best to compare her to the app. She’s hilarious, sweet, entertaining, and she’s always there. Plus she never shuts up about Timothée Chalamet.
