The opinion pages are crucial for our democracy.
There's never a definitive answer a writer can give when posed the question, "why do you write?"
For the readers;
For when words on a page are the only way you can express yourself.
For the absolute love of writing.
But, for me, there's one other fundamental: The opinion pages are crucial for our democracy. Diverse views in commentary make differing ideas accessible, creating a more informed, contributing, and successful populace.
My mission is to connect people with new perspectives and ideas.
I focus on politics and higher education. I mainly report for The Daily Pennsylvanian in Philadelphia.
Originally from Auckland, New Zealand, I study at the University of Pennsylvania.
For questions, comments, suggestions, dissent, banter, discourse.
