My name is Kayla, and I’m taking over as news editor at the Lanthorn this semester. I’m 20 years old, from Grand Rapids and a recent transfer student from Grand Rapids Community College. I’m now a junior majoring in multimedia journalism and hoping to do as much journalism as I can! In my free time (what free time?) I enjoy painting, hiking and traveling. I also like reading, especially historical nonfiction and novels. I live in Kentwood with my fiancé, Ariel, and our cat, Coco. My future plans include reporting the news and making the most of each moment.
