Anna Tabet | Chief of Business
Anna Tabet is a freshman journalism/PR major from Austin, Texas. Prior to settling in Austin, she lived in Vermont, which somehow provided her with a weird combination of southern and northern mannerisms.
During her free time, Anna would most likely be looking for a dog to pet or annoying her roommate by singing (badly) loudly. After using writing as her own outlet for years, Anna hopes that she can now use it to allow others to have their voices heard. She is excited to see what she will experience while at Baylor and far beyond.

Abby Granata | Graphic Designer
Abby Granata is a freshman graphic design major with a minor in advertising from the Jersey shore (but she can assure you—it’s nothing like the show).
With a lifelong love for design and an odd obsession with typography, she’s thrilled to be sharing her passion and enthusiasm with the staff of The Bundle. When Abby isn’t feverishly photoshopping, you can find her studying art history, participating in Kappa Alpha Theta events, or putting up with her roommate’s renditions of show tunes (that Abby eventually can’t help but sing along to).
Clarissa Pompa | Staff Writer
Clarissa Pompa is a senior journalism major with a concentration in photography and is from Helotes, Texas. Her origin story consists of being raised on comics that featured Lois Lane, Clark Kent, Jimmy Olsen, and Peter Parker. Combine that with family members who have all pursued photography at some point, you have the perfect formula for a budding Peter Parker. With fewer webs and hopefully less Parker luck.
However, as she progresses through college, she finds herself torn between her origin and her new passion: theatre (which leaves her father baffled). Odds are that if she has her headphones in, she’s listening to a carefully cultivated playlist of musicals that require incredible self-restraint to not sing along to. As of right now, the main question in her life is how to work for Playbill or DC.

Whitney Hunter | Staff Writer
Whitney Hunter is a senior Public Relations major with a French Minor from Moorpark, California.
If there is a personality test, Whitney has taken it. She strongly identifies as an ENFP and an enneagram 7 with an 8 wing. She loves all things food, music, hockey, musical theatre, and cats. However, she ironically dislikes the musical Cats.
You can find her hanging out with friends or more likely hear her distinct voice chatting loudly with everyone she meets. If she’s not in Waco, she’s probably in Dallas or Austin singing along (off-key, but enthusiastically) at concerts. She has found a creative outlet in design and has used this passion to serve as t-shirt chair for her sorority, Alpha Chi Omega.
She is still trying to lock down her post-graduate plans, but she hopes to move to the Dallas area to pursue a career at a digital media firm or in the entertainment industry. She hopes to move back to California when she has a bit more money saved up and a lot more patience for that lovely Los Angeles traffic.
