Yoav Raichelson is an 18-year-old senior at Hall High School. He currently lives in West Hartford, CT, with his mother, father, and younger sister, who also attends Hall.


Yoav has always been a good writer; in his previous English classes he excelled by bringing strong language into discussions, as well as having the ability to build and support strong arguments. Yoav says he is taking journalism first semester “To improve (his) skills as a writer, and to learn a new style of writing."  When asked about what he would prefer to specialize in, his answer came easily, claiming he’d love to work with “sports, because I have a strong passion for it and it’s something I enjoy talking about.”


In his free time, Yoav loves to play and watch a multitude of sports, including football, basketball and baseball. Raichelson runs cross country for Hall in the fall and plays town wide basketball in the winter. In terms of future plans, he wants to go to college but says he is unsure of what he wants to major in.
