In this edition of Five Questions and a Sketch we feature Sabrina Edwards, our Editor-in-Chief this semester. She is a 21-year-old Wyoming native who graduated from Grandville High School and is currently studying multimedia journalism at GRCC. She has been part of The Collegiate for three semesters and plans to transfer to Grand Valley State University at the end of the fall semester. In her free time you may find her talking to fellow residents on Eroda in the video game “Animal Crossing: New Horizons,” a video game which she has logged over 300 hours in.
Why did you join The Collegiate?
I enrolled in the class because it aligns with my major, and I’ve been continuing it because I feel it’s important to be a voice on campus, especially during these uncertain times.
What are you looking forward to writing about this semester?
I’m looking forward to taking on the role of Editor-in-Chief. It’ll be a different experience especially with everything being virtual.
What are your goals for after you leave GRCC?
After GRCC, I plan on graduating from GVSU and hopefully getting a job at a broadcasting studio.
What is your favorite article/story you’ve written? Why?
I really enjoy writing album reviews, I’ve done a couple of those now, but I think my all-time favorite article currently is “Mops, brooms, bleach, and colored pencils: the creative life of a GRCC custodian.” Being able to speak to someone who has a hidden talent on GRCC’s campus was a really fun experience.
What do you want the GRCC community to know about you and how they can interact with The Collegiate?
Our main goal is to inform readers and see how people in our community are dealing with different things that are impacting them. We welcome readers to send in any comments via Instagram or even by email, firstname.lastname@example.org. It’s been difficult to reach out to GRCC students because we aren’t on campus, so we always welcome anyone to reach out.
Have suggestions about who I should feature next? Drop me a tip at email@example.com. I’d love to hear from you!
