I am a junior and an editor for the Opinion section. When I was a staff writer last year, I wrote about everything from education to climate change to technology. I loved the flexibility the Sword and Shield gave me in expressing my views on any and every issue I am passionate about. Now, as an editor, I immensely enjoy reading other writers’ articles, seeing their diverse perspectives, and having my own beliefs challenged. My favorite part about the Sword and Shield is how it values individuality by giving students a legitimate platform to express themselves while building an irreplaceable sense of community on campus.
