Emma Simmons, Editor-in-Chief

Hey, guys! My name is Emma Simmons, and I am Sarah’s other half and Co-Editor. This is my fourth and final year of journalism, so everyone is in for one heck of a ride! It’s hard to encompass myself in a blurb, but the highlights are that I like cats, space, cryptids, and the weird, wacky and wonderful things in the world. I listen to a variety of music and my taste is constantly changing… but my favorites currently are Will Wood, Fish in a Birdcage and Mother Mother. What doesn’t change is my love of humor: if you’re funny I like you already. I’m also deeply interested in personality types, specifically the enneagram. Ask me about Vermin Supreme.

I look forward to this year in journalism and I’m excited to see how everyone grows and flourishes this year!
