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.
All of the things that infuriate me are important, and if I have a message for anyone, it is that it is OK to be angry.
Of graduating Hatchet staff, I think I’ve been around the shortest. For only the past year, I’ve been the contributing photo editor for culture.
