Since I began working at Ethos Magazine in 2013, I have strived to find untold stories in the Eugene community. This award-winning student publication focuses on multicultural feature articles. As an associate editor, I have managed story groups, pitched ideas, and edited stories. My own written work has been published in the print and online editions of Ethos.
