I am more grateful for this opportunity and this experience than I ever thought I would be. I never anticipated taking on a role with TSO, much less the role of editor in chief, but when life hands you lemons, you listen to Beyonce and make lemonade.
This year has been one of rebuilding and incredible growth for TSO. There is so much opportunity and potential and I hope our efforts have allowed for TSO to thrive in the coming years. Thank you so much to all of our contributors over this past year. Please continue to send your intellectual opinion pieces, newsy updates, intriguing speaker profiles and sassy satire. Thank you to the bureau chiefs who were unbelievable in keeping pace with articles and school at the same time. Thank you to my leadership team. I could not have done any of this without you.
Finally, thank you to our readers. The SAIS community is all about the support we give one another, so thank you for your support. Now go crush finals.
What a journey this past year has been. I’m so grateful for my team – the editors who have worked tirelessly to ensure TSO content is of the highest quality possible and the fantastic bureau chiefs who have demonstrated skillful leadership and a unrivaled love for student journalism. Working alongside each and every one of you has inspired me professionally and as always, shown how freedom of thought and expression will continue to be our greatest strength.
Contributors, thank you for breathing life into the multiple news stories, sociopolitical issues and general SAIS happenings. Your musings have kept our campuses much more connected, and I hope that continues for the years to come. I couldn’t be happier to have been a part of TSO during my two years at SAIS and will always look forward to reading the newest article. Good luck!
