My name is Marenda Scales, I am your new Editor-in-Chief of The Globe. I am super excited to be working for our student newspaper and I have some pretty big changes that are in store!
A little bit about myself, I am a New York native, but I have been living in Georgia for almost 10 years. Initially, my intention was to do like most, and get my prerequisites out of the way and then transfer to another school like Kennesaw State or Georgia State. I felt like I did not belong; everyone already had their group of people that they were friends with and I just could not find mine. I tried joining The Globe a few times but it just was not the right time for me.
After the third try, I finally became serious and joined. I started out as a reporter; writing one of my first ever articles. It did not get published immediately but after countless revisions, it was finally ready for publication. I wrote a few other stories after that, still getting my feet wet before I was offered the position as the Communications Editor. Throughout this role, I tried (and in my opinion) failed at getting our social media back up. I did have a few successful posts but nothing compared to how it is now. (By the way…if you’re not already following our Instagram and Twitter you should do so)
While working for The Globe, unexpected friendships and connections have been made. While I am Editor-in-Chief of this publication I want the same experience to be available to you. With the launch of the website, we are looking for people who are interested in photography, art, digital design, creative writers, sports writers, and those who want to shed some light on the accomplishments of their individual schools.
Be sure to stop by our office in Lvis (student center) building room 3151 if you are interested in working with The Globe! We have open office hours almost every day and open meetings twice a week, Monday and Wednesday from 12pm-2pm.
