Nicolaas Grobler, Staff Writer

A fact not known to many, Nicolaas Grobler (‘24) is talented in the kitchen as both a chef and a baker. His favorite dish? The “surf and turf.” Surfer, skateboarder, skim boarder, and dirty blonde hair — he is your typical Californian. Surprisingly, Nick is originally from the concrete city of Manhattan, spending most of his summers surfing the Atlantic waters of Montauk. On the turf, he is a four-sport athlete; soccer is his favorite activity, with football, volleyball, and track as close seconds. This year, Nick joins journalism as a staff writer, attracted by the course’s freedom and abundant opportunities to hone his writing skills for a future career in Business or Law. His proactive spirit and desire to “step up” took him to the vice junior class officer position, hoping to help plan events and dances that are enjoyable for the entire student body. On rare occasions he is not out and active, he enjoys watching horror movies such as Hereditary or laughing along to comedies such as Rick and Morty. While writing may not be nearly as exhilarating as shredding the waves or scoring a hat trick, Nick is thrilled to become the best journalist he can possibly be.
