As a student-led and student-produced newspaper, the staff of writers and editors is filled with students of different majors, minors, capabilities, and goals! To get a closer look at the staff, here is page dedicated to the minds behind Periscope!
After graduation, I want to be an anchor and reporter on news stations. I have a real passion for communication and news gathering. Acting is also a first love, so I want to break into film and entertainment. You might see me on the silver screen one day.
I love to play the piano, write songs, read, exercise, play sports, travel, meet new people, and cheer on my Boston sports teams.
Arts and Entertainment Editor
Major: Communication (Concentration in Journalism)
Minor: French & Sports Communication
After graduation, I see myself working with fashion or sports, whether it be in writing or broadcasting, because those are two of my favorite things to write about and work with. I would love to working in New York.
I enjoy playing soccer in my free time, and I am on the soccer team here at Shorter. I love being with my team, friends, and family.

After graduation, I hope to go on to get my Master’s degree in Psychology, and become a doctor of Psychology. With that education under my belt, I aspire to become a family or adolescent counselor. Helping people, guiding them into learning how to love themselves and to see light where it is dim, is what I strive to do in my career. I hope to one day return to South Africa and work with Living Hope Ministries as a Youth Counselor. With my love for writing, I wish to use my minor as a tool to write a book or multiple books based on seeing that light, Jesus, in our everyday struggles.
I love to sing and play the piano. I love writing and reading. Fine Arts is a field that I desperately love, and with that love, I want to help people. That’s all I want in life.
