Michelle Huang

is a sophomore in CC majoring in Art History and Financial Economics. She hopes to become the next great American landscape painter, but she plans on leaving her paintings camouflaged in the wilderness. She loves exploring rocks, so much so that her fingers have acquired a similar texture. She enjoys night jogs, and when she's not painting or climbing, she's baking banana bread.

 

Eileen Gao

is a first-year SEAS student, presumably majoring in some form of engineering (unless she decides to pursue a degree in art instead). She wishes to spend her time reading and drinking tea in a fancy mansion, but will most likely spend the remainder of her life attempting to pay off her tuition. She has never finished writing anything except for a short story about a prophetic flying pig.

 

Rachel Page

is a CC sophomore studying philosophy and political science. Her favorite things include (but not limited to) floral prints, pad thai, yellow backpacks, pink sweaters, and candles under five dollars that don't smell entirely disgusting.

Irina Teveleva

is a Columbia College senior from Amherst, MA, majoring in English. She likes pear tarts, sad love poems, and when flocks of pigeons all fly together up Broadway.

 

Alison Peebles

is a sophomore in CC who is studying English! I’m out here trying to be the kind of person who has two eggs for breakfast, reads the New Yorker and runs for pleasure. I also enjoy listening to Chance the Rapper and reading about the ethics of food production and spending time with my family in New Jersey. I’m also probably procrastinating by manifesting my best life via the visual wonder that is Pinterest.

Staff Editors

Priya Pai

is a freshman in Columbia College planning to major in English Literature and Computer Science. She loves her beagle more than most people, adores quirky socks, and appreciates a good cup of coffee. In the future, she hopes to travel as much as she can and write mediocre poetry along the way. (P.S. Come talk to her! She likes listening.)

 

Sidney Renaud Eberly

is a first-year in CC who likes people, places, and things. Often mistaken for a robot by sites due to her inability to solve those new picture captchas. Not a robot, as far as she knows.

 

Cameron Lee

is a first-year in Columbia College and she hopes to major in Creative Writing and Visual Art. In her free time she draws a lot, watches every single TV show about superheroes, waves to dogs she sees on the street, and eats too much peanut butter. She aspires to one day be the female protagonist in a young adult fantasy novel.

 

Kim Chia

is a freshman in SEAS hoping to eventually, after many long future years, become a pediatrician. She loves to watch The Office, Shameless, and Grey's Anatomy with her free time, as well as play Spikeball.

Zhaneque Craig

is a junior in CC studying Psychology with an interest in philosophy. Despite being a native New Yorker, Zhaneque is a known anglophile who prefers the London Tube to the NYC Subway. When she’s not writing poetry or sleeping, she enjoys playing video games as her cat, Squeaky, sits curled on her lap.

 

Anny Son

is a junior in CC majoring in English Literature and Human Rights. She loves to read, write, listen to music, talk to and pet all passing dogs on the street. Her spirit animal is Lame Selfie Bee on Tumblr (highly relatable and humorous even if you aren't as painfully awkward). While her favorite books are Victorian, French existentialist, and dystopians, she will not discriminate when it comes to books and will read everything. Her dream is to travel around the world and visit all the different libraries.
