During my undergrad I spent three semesters with Humboldt State University’s newspaper. My time with the paper started as a writer and ended as opinion editor.
During our weekly meetings the production team would pick a topic and as opinion editor, I would be responsible for writing the editorials.
Slauson Girl was my byline during my time as a writer for The Lumberjack.
In 2017 The Lumberjack revamped their website, losing all the archives of previous students work, which used to be available online. I have published at least 30 articles over the course of 3 semesters in addition to winning national awards for a weekly column I produced for The Lumberjack, “Slauson Girl Speaks.”
This website was revamped in August of 2017 from a simple blog and this platform now operates as a news and culture website.
This website was created to serve the purpose of representation for marginalized inner-city youth–specifically girls within the confines of South Central (which is also experiencing major gentrification).
