Observer

Lisa Lilianstrom
My name is Lisa Lilianstrom and I am getting my Associate in Arts degree with an intent to transfer and major in Journalism. Besides the Observer I am also the service officer in United Students of All Cultures (USAC), I am also an ally for the LGBTQ+ club Students Who Are Not Silent (S.W.A.N.S), I also attend several events for other clubs as well trying to be supportive for everyone. I joined the Observer originally to take photos but as time went on I improved on my writing skills and now I do both! I joined because I love telling stories, and I want them to be heard. I want to give people a platform, a voice. When I am not at school I am either reading, writing, playing video games, taking photos, making art, and making a difference in the world!
