It has been an honor to have been the Clarion’s Opinions editor this past year. It was my goal stepping into this position to encourage student voice to be heard, shine a light on the different experiences of the many different students that make up DU and to give a space for students to make sense of all the chaos taking place in the world. I can only hope that I have made the steps to achieving this.
To Jill and Kellsie, my first editors: Thank you so much for taking me in, teaching me how to be successful and helping me turn my rants into articles. You both inspire me, and I look forward to seeing all that you both accomplish.
To John and Ryan, my current editors: The laughter, love and patience you have given me have been endless. I know this paper is in good hands, and I have faith you two will make the Clarion better than ever.
To Ellie, the editor who will be taking this position: I wish you the best of luck. This position is not always easy, but it is always worthwhile. I know you will do great, and quite likely, will do better than I could ever have imagined.
To everyone who has supported me, especially my readers: Thank you. Truly. Without you, I could not have done any of it. I encourage you all to keep investing in this paper because it will never stop investing in you.
With all the love in my heart,
