The Daily Illini

[email protected]

Hello! I'm Kaitlin and I'm excited to be the new design editor at the Daily Illini! I'm a junior majoring in studio art with a minor in creative writing and started working at the Daily Illini last semester. I have a passion for painting, illustrating, writing stories, cooking, and watching horror movies. In my free time, I love to hang out with friends, create art or sing random songs (my voice hasn't broken anything yet, so maybe that's a sign I'm the next rising star). I'm excited to take on this position at the Daily Illini, and everything it has to offer!

Kaitlin Mikrut, Design Editor
