Juan Castillo
My name is Juan Castillo. This is my fourth semester here at Elgin Community College. I am working towards my Associate in Arts here at ECC and plan on transferring to a four-year school and majoring in journalism. I am a reporter here at The Observer. I joined in hopes of growing as a writer and improving on my reporting skills that I will hopefully use in my future career. I have a passion for the truth and work towards providing accurate and honest information to the public and the Observer's readers.
