Letter from the Editors
I wish I could tell you that our story was an exciting one but really, we just happened to have dinner together one day and were equally angry about everything in the world and decided to create The Gazette.
More About Us!
I’m Harleen, and I am a sophomore. Without boring everyone about the grimy details of the process of creating TGG, let me tell you a little bit about myself. I’ve always wanted to be a writer. It all started when I watched Meryl Streep play the fictional version of Anna Wintour and I wanted nothing more than to ruthlessly scoff a “That’s all” at a helpless intern. Moving on from my sadistic pleasures, more about me– I’m Indian and have lived in Oman for about half of my life. I enjoy writing bad poetry about cute birds I saw and listening to Chet Baker and crying about the future.
I’m Ngoc, or often referred to as Triangle. You could always find me simultaneously having existential crises about my lack of purpose in life and working on overly ambitious projects like TGG or my research on Vietnamese grassroot activism. I lived two thirds of my life in Vietnam and the other third in the US, and both countries got me addicted to junk food and coffee. In my free time I enjoy lifting, swimming, and eating carb-laden food (ask the lady at Papa John’s). I also love hip hop music and spoken word poetry.
We hope TGG will become a platform for all students to express themselves, whether politically, artistically, or nonchalantly through random op-eds. We believe that quality journalism matters, and hope to improve the standards of student journalism not only in Georgetown but also Education City and the world. We welcome all constructive opinions, so don’t hesitate to submit your writing or drop us a message at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your Editors in Chief.
