am thankful for my four years at TNH and all the people I have had the chance to cross paths with. The newspaper has helped me build my own journalistic foundation and begin to build my brand. I am, however, only a product of those who came before me and those who affect me currently. So instead of saying goodbye, I am just going to say thank you.

Thank you Arjuna Ramgopal for taking the time to teach me how to write a proper story when I was a freshman and had zero idea what I was doing. Your kindness during that process helped me learn to love journalism.

Thank you Nick Stoico, Josh Sullivan, and Justin Loring for your guidance and friendship. You all made a young journalist feel welcome and important to the newspaper. I grew immensely as a writer due to your attention to details.

Thank you to Meg Heckman, Tom Haines, Lisa Miller, and David Cateneo. You brought unparalleled enthusiasm to the class room every day and pushed me outside my comfort-zone time and time again. You gave me confidence, not only in my abilities as a journalist, but also in myself as a person.

Thank you to Sam Rabuck and Andrew Yourell. Despite our friendship outside of TNH, you two allowed me to run with my crazy columns and gave me plenty of latitude to run with my ideas. I am beyond lucky to call you both friends.

I will never forget where my career began. Journalism matters now more than ever. Thank you TNH.
