A few sentences about me: I am taking my fourth year of journalism and I am very excited about it. Last year, I was the Editor-in-Chief of Web as well as the Copy Editing Executive. This year, I will be helping out staff members with anything they need. Other than journalism and writing, I am very interested in entomology (the study of insects), taxidermy, music, drumming and baleen whales. #skuBonitions4life
