MEET THE CHIEFS OF
THE CHIEF OF CHIEFS
This is Shardae. We are proud to call her our Commander-In-Chief. She is a beautiful, talented, and intelligent, natural-born leader. A graduate from MC with a degree in Biomedical Sciences, Shardae has a thirst for knowledge and adventure. Her reading list includes Pedro G. Ferreira’s The Perfect Theory, Einstein’s Relativity, Stephen Hawking’s A Brief History of Time, and Harper Lee’s Go Set a Watchman; however, Shardae doesn’t spend all her time sequestered away reading. She finds the time to zip line over waterfalls in Honduras and to go to awesome music festivals. She has big dreams like owning her own library, getting her Master’s degree, and traveling to Australia to hang out with the kangaroos.
THE BLOG CHIEF
An introverted English Literature major, Nolie is perfectly suited for the job of Blog Chief. A love of the written word permeates her life. From the writing for the Choctawk to tutoring at MC’s Writing Center, Nolie always strives for success. Driven and hardworking, she dreams of getting her Ph. D. one day. Nothing makes Nolie’s heart soar like sitting down with a cup of tea and a gripping book. Last spring, Nolie lived in London and wants to live in the United Kingdom again. When she’s not working to achieve her future career goals, Nolie enjoys baking, cooking, hiking, doing yoga, and running. In fact, she is going to run a marathon before she graduates from MC.
ASSISTANT BLOG CHIEF
Mary is passionate, driven, and intelligent. As a studio art major, Mary brings creativity and fresh perspective to everything she encounters. She spends her morning drawing, her evenings working at Wyatt Waters Gallery, and her nights throwing in the ceramics lab. Although Mary is taking a full course load and working two jobs, she still manages to find the time to indulge her love of Netflix. Mary is a die-hard foodie and is a strong believer in the “treat yo self” philosophy promoted by the show Parks and Rec. In fact, she may treat herself to her favorite food, a steak, later this year.
SOCIAL MEDIA CHIEF
Andrew likes to live life like he is on a permanent vacation at the beach, so it’s not surprising that one of his travel goals is to chill on Waimea Beach in Hawaii. His schedule is busy, but he likes to think that his schedule is full of opportunities, not obligations. Some of these opportunities include being a Public Relations major, the president of Shawreth, and Swannanoa’s senior beau. In his free time, you can find him cheering on Arsenal football, reading a good book, and eating all the food (except Twizzlers).
Meet Mariah, one of our awesome photographers. She is a Graphic Design major who thrives on awkward conversations. She is a fan of bacon and peanut butter but not together. Her life philosophy is "Enjoy the process." She dreams of being a creative director at a church and traveling as a photographer.
Sara is a graphic design major who is also the Historian for Laguna Social Tribe. She either wants to shoot lookbooks for Free People or street photography for National Geographic. She is obsessed with paper products like cards and art prints. Her piece of life advice comes from Penny Lane in Almost Famous: "Never take it seriously. If you never take it seriously, you never get hurt. If you never get hurt, you always have fun. & if you ever get lonely, you just go to the record store & visit your friends." -Penny Lane in "Almost Famous"
Reagan is our videographer extraordinaire. She is into health/fitness, and she teaches a Kidzfit class at the Healthplex. This summer she lived in Glacier National Park in Montana, and if given the choice, she'd rather be camping than anything else.
