Pari Apostolakos

Hello, my name is Pari Apostolakos and I am a senior in Media, majoring in broadcast journalism with a minor in Spanish. I have been with The DI since August 2017 as a staff writer for the features section, I quickly became an assistant features editor in March 2018. I then moved up to features editor in December 2018 and took over as managing editor for reporting in March of 2019. I'm so grateful to have grown with this publication over my collegiate career. Although I am currently studying abroad in Pamplona, Spain for the semester, I can't wait to continue working at The DI when I return to campus.
