The Boiling Point

Molly Litvak
Molly Litvak joined the Boiling Point in her freshman year as a staff writer and quickly fell in love with journalism. She was Community editor in her junior year, and Outside News editor in sophomore year, where she won multiple national awards for her stories, especially for her report on anti-gentrification protests at Asher Caffe in Boyle Heights. Outside of writing, editing, and leading meetings for the Boiling Point, Molly is the captain of Shalhevet’s Model Congress team, a senior lawyer on the Mock Trial team, and a teen board member of Friendship Circle, where she has been volunteering since seventh grade.
