I partially found where I “fit in” at GW through my reporting and copy editing for The Hatchet, but mostly, I found it through the people I’ve met while doing this work.
In this creative chaos, I’ve refined my graphic design abilities, gained confidence in myself and made some quality friends along the way.
Thank you to everyone who has offered me guidance, made me laugh, lent a helping hand or pushed me to do better. You have all helped me blossom at The Hatchet.
When I became editor in chief, I was given a microphone to tell important stories and make change, but that microphone has been heavy.
I have met and worked with so many passionate and talented people at the paper. And I have learned something from nearly all of you.
Because of my time at The Hatchet, I know that I will step, not fall, into the next chapters of my life (mostly) unafraid.
Goodbyes are hard, and I’m struggling to write mine. So I guess I’ll end with this: The paper is its people. I have met some of my best friends here.
I’m a better person because I joined The Hatchet. And I’ll forever be thankful that The Hatchet provided some yellow to my life.
I am leaving both The Hatchet and GW as a better woman than I was when I first arrived, and I have my colleagues to thank for that.
Becoming sports editor for The Hatchet taught me to be fearless and confident in everything I do.
