@gunnburrito is a newer account that started in April of 2022 by seniors Anya Lin and Kai Porter. The idea came about after a friend suggested that Lin take an inflatable burrito to Prom as her date. From there, Lin and Porter decided to personify the burrito as a Gunn student and, naturally, create an Instagram account for it. The burrito attends many Gunn events, such as Homecoming Week, football games and more. Lin and Porter style the burrito for these various occasions. “We go around [Goodwill] looking for all kinds of supplies,” Porter said.
Lin enjoys how the burrito’s attendance adds to the hype of events. “When we bring the burrito to events it makes people happy,” she said. “[It’s] nice to know that such a silly idea we had actually has an impact.”
