Hi, I'm Wendy! I'm one of the print managing editors, and I'm so excited for my final year on staff! In the past, I've been a Feature reporter, Student Section copy editor, and Feature editor. When I'm not working on HiLite-related tasks, I love watching ASMR videos, taking photos of the sunset, and spending time with dogs at IndyHumane. I am also a devoted Swiftie. Take a look at some of my work on this page!
