  • What is your position on “The Hiller”?

Media Editor and Arts and Entertainment Editor.

  • Why did you become a part of the staff and how long have you been on it?

I was rewatching Gilmore Girls and thought journalism would be fun, so I found out about “The Hiller” and I read the articles and emailed Mrs. O’Lare about it.

  • Which article was your favorite and why?

“Glenda Cleveland becomes Milwaukee’s hero after release of Dahmer documentary” was my favorite because I thought it was very interesting and it also helped me learn what we can and cannot print.

  • How has being a part of “The Hiller” impacted you?

I feel like it’s helped me branch out creatively and it’s going to set me up in the future and I’m really grateful for that. I also just love the people in here.

  • What is your favorite memory of “The Hiller” throughout your time on staff?

Probably dancing for Mrs. O’Lare.

  • What have you learned from journalism?

I feel like it’s taught me more about the importance of connecting with people and that no story is unimportant.

  • What will you miss most about journalism?

Mrs. O’Lare.

  • What is your best word of advice for the staff members?

Try to impact others, because everything you put out has an impact. Be intentional with everything you do.

  • How many red pens do you think Mrs. O’Lare has used when grading your articles?

Half of one.

  • Do you have anything else to add/final words to the staff members?

Try to come up with good podcast ideas because it’s very hard.
