Megan Harding, Assistant Opinions Editor

Hi! My name is Megan and I’m a freshman studying journalism. I joined the DI a couple of months into my first semester here, and specifically chose the opinions section since it is so different from the news or feature stories I am typically writing for classes. I love reading and contributing to the unique perspectives columns bring to the publication. When I am not writing for the DI or my classes, I enjoy listening to 2000s throwback music, driving around historic neighborhoods and pretending I live there and watching Dance Moms.
