Meet the Staff- Opinion

Meet the other sections: News || Features || Opinion || Sports

My name is Hannah Cho and I am the Executive Editor of the Chronicle. I am responsible for editing articles before they get published, and also teaching underclassmen journalistic style and writing. Last year I served as Opinion Section Head, and I enjoy helping out with layout.

Outside of the newsroom, I fence, spend a lot of my time doing community service work, and love reading.
