The Daily Illini

Elizabeth Sayasane
I'm Elizabeth Sayasane and I am the Features Editor for this year. This is my third year working for the features team, and I am incredibly excited to continue working for this section that has brought so much joy to my time here! I'm a junior studying English, alongside my journalism and political science minors. Along with my work at The Daily Illini, I'm involved with the English Honors Society and the Women's Resources Center. I love baking bread, reading, and watching dumb movies with my friends.
