Hello world! My name is Margaret Yau, and I’m a senior at the University of California, San Diego. There, I am majoring in political science and minoring in communications, and to the chagrin of my bank account, I am not pre-law.
Instead, I am what some people call a student journalist. This current school term, I am living and interning in Washington D.C., where I am a communications intern for the U.S. Department of Education. Post-grad, I will Teach for America in New York City.
I have finally left my post as managing editor for The Guardian, where I was (rightfully) known as the Sound and the Fury. I spent the past summer of 2012 as a reporting intern for the North County Times up in Oceanside and as an editorial intern for UCSD’s Alumni magazine. The summer before that, I was the Union-Tribune‘s first opinion-editorial intern.
My favorite X-Men (X-Man?) is Wolverine. My favorite Avenger is the Hulk. I have always known that Winter is Coming. Breaking Bad is the best dramatic television series ever made; Arrested Development is the best comedy.
