Michal Ruprecht
Hi readers and random internet people, my name is Michal Ruprecht (aka. Miché) and I'm a junior, Editor-at-Large and member of the Editorial Board. I started my journalism career during my freshman year and have continued ever since, which makes this my third year on staff. I am in charge of making sure the paper has solid content that gets to print on time. If I’m not in B-302 (our headquarters) you’ll probably find me leading Chemistry Club (I'm the Vice President) and attending Health Careers Investigation Club and NHS meetings. If I'm not doing any of that—which isn't often—I enjoy traveling, volunteering and shadowing at St. John Hospital and Medical Center, swimming and playing violin and piano. Feel free to read more about me on my personal website here. Enough about me, start reading some stories. Thanks for visiting and come back soon!
