I love being a boss. It's absolutely glorious. People fear me (hopefully) and I get to decide what articles are written, what's published, how it's published, and I'm making connections nationwide. I've learned a lot about people, writing, and myself.
I became the Arts and Entertainment Editor of the Western Herald this past summer. My phone interview was quick and easy because Jax Anger, editor-in-chief, already knew my work and a few of my plans for our little newspaper.
Starting my senior year as an editor was a huge learning experience in terms of people, articles, and classes. The biggest thing I've learned is how to manage people.
