Grace Xu
Hi, I'm Grace Xu, a junior and second-year staff member. Along with Michelle Lu, I will be working as the Chief Reporter/Writing Coach for the year. In the past, I've been an Entertainment Reporter as well as a Beats Editor, and you can see the work I've done in those roles to the right. Outside of journalistic endeavors, I love reading, petting cats, and more (creative) writing!
