The Daily Illini

I'm a junior in news-editorial journalism from the Southwest suburbs of Chicago. I've been involved with The Daily Illini since my freshman year, and was a reporter and copy editor before I became the Special Sections Editor. When I'm not at The Daily Illini, you can find me watching a horror movie, writing for my blog ( or searching for a dog to pet.
