Faith Allendorf, Features Editor

Hello! My name is Faith Allendorf and I’m a junior in the College of LAS. I transferred to the University of Illinois in Fall 2021 from community college. I began writing for The Daily Illini in Fall 2021, and later became the Features Editor for the Life & Culture section for Spring 2022. I also write for the Chicago-based paper, GREY Journal. Besides journalism, I also love writing novels and short-stories as well as hiking and watching TV and movies. I am so excited to be working as the Features Editor, and I cannot wait to see what will blossom from The Daily Illini this spring. `
