About a year ago, I said hello. Now it’s time for me to say goodbye.
Whenever anyone asks me about the past year at The Observer, I can’t make it more than two sentences without commending the hard work of my peers at the paper. I frequently follow up with “God, I feel like such a mom,” and a laugh, but it’s true.
When the Editorial Board and I officially began leading the paper, our little family was established. I adopted the Marmee March persona, partially because we ran out of March sisters. On a more subconscious level, I hoped to exude Marmee’s energy throughout my time as Editor-in-Chief.
She is patient and kind and always willing to help others. She lives without compromising her principles but never fails to listen to others. Sometimes she is angry, but she never lets those feelings compromise her actions. Above all, Marmee is always proud of the work her children accomplish.
