Halsey Smith, Editor in Chief

Halsey a.k.a. Chief, is a child genius and try-hard (Summer @ Brown and Northwestern Medill cherubs grad) who can be found either making iced coffee, referencing obscure moments from ‘The Office,’ working at her dog-walking business, or taking photos of her own pup that she doesn’t, in fact, walk. She is always up for a ‘Friends’ marathon or a debriefing session about the symbolism in ‘Lost.’ Halsey’s middle name is Halsey and she gets annoyed when people call her by her legal first name, Jenna.

Q: Do you believe that all people who are eligible to vote should and why?

A: Yes, all people should voice their opinions. If 18-year-olds have a strong opinion, they need to vote unless they are going to be dumb about it.
