I began taking beginning journalism in my sophomore year, in 2016. My current position is Arts section editor and I really enjoy writing stories and layout, as well as interacting with everyone on staff. My best story would be either the gun violence debate or the alum features. My favorite hobbies are journaling, drawing, playing badminton and piano.
