Why did you want to join the Highlander?
In high school, I decided to join the newspaper on a whim and fell in love. As soon as I found out that I was going to Regis I looked into working on The Highlander and after taking a news writing class from Ian Dawe I knew that's exactly where I wanted to be.
Please describe your position on the Highlander.
I'm the digital editor of The Highlander so I'm in charge of posting stories to the website and the app. I also was in charge of the switch to digital which is probably what I'm most proud of. I spent many nights up late nitpicking fonts and colors for the website and app design but in the end, it all came together perfectly.
Now tell us something that makes you unique.
Oh wow, I don’t know, I guess I'm mildly allergic to vinegar so every time I eat anything with vinegar in it like ketchup I start to sweat under my eyes. My entire family does so I thought it was totally normal until one time I brought it up at dinner my freshman year and all my friends looked at me like I had grown a second head. Or maybe my love for Billy Joel, which in and of itself isn't unique but I think the fact that almost every song of his makes me cry might be. Just last week I started crying in the cafeteria because "She's Always A Woman" came on and my friend Ali, like any good pal would, recorded me. My all time favorite songs of his are "Scenes From An Italian Restaurant" and "We Didn't Start The Fire.” You pick which one to put!
(They were both too good and if you know Natalia, then you know these are definitely her.)
