Gatepost office - Oct. 2019

As a Poli-Sci student, I took an interest in journalism as the fourth check on government, holding it accountable from the outside.

Following this, I went beyond my major to take an intro to journalism class led by Liz Banks - a news reporter herself. She further encouraged me to join the university’s student paper, The Gatepost.

I started out as an Op/Ed writer, submitting opinions on my studies, but was soon thrown into news. It was there I really began to hone my skills as a journalist, contributing to as many articles as I authored myself.

Although COVID-19 halted our print edition in the spring of 2020, we were proud to continue publishing online every week when many other student-run papers ceased altogether. As news editor at the time, I encouraged us to publish as many stories as possible about the campus-wide reaction to the pandemic for future reference.

The Gatepost recently moved to a new website, and many of my old articles are not yet hosted there. So I've republished a selection of my favorites here, including many of the lockdown articles that never made it to print.
