Jocelyn O’Keeffe is a freshman day student from New Jersey and one of the newest members of the Oracle. She joined this season because of her interest in writing stories and using them to share her passions with others, and she hopes to continue exploring that passion in Blair’s student newspaper. She’s most excited to be part of the Oracle team so she can discuss and share her writing with other team members.
Fantasy is her favorite genre of storytelling because she loves that it places no limitations on her imagination. Growing up, when Jocelyn had to build a story off of a starting sentence from her writing teachers , her mind was always filled with ideas and she loved to write as she went along.
Jocelyn is also especially passionate about sports. Her primary passion is competitive softball, which she’s been playing since she was eight. For the past two years, she has also been part of the national softball team Intensity. Her favorite thing about competitive softball is that it challenges her to strive to be the best teammate and player she can be. Wrestling is another sport she enjoys, and she has been involved in it for three years. Her motivation for playing sports is keeping active and having the opportunity to build friendships with other girls across the United States. Jocelyn hopes to pursue both softball and wrestling during her Blair career.
