The Daily Illini

Well, hello there! My name is Heather Robinson and I'm a sophomore majoring in journalism and minoring in french. When I'm not in school, some of my favorite activities include piano playing, adventuring and a little bit of modeling. I adore all kinds of movies, especially when at the theater, and my favorite film is Moulin Rouge! Since I can remember, I have had an enormous passion for writing, and am so grateful that I have the ability to incorporate that into working here with the DI.
