Ella Kanter, Public Relations Editor

My name is Ella Kanter, and I’m a senior at ETHS! It is my second year on the staff of The Evanstonian. Last year, I wrote for the In-Depth section and this year I am the Public Relations Editor. My favorite part of writing for The Evanstonian is reaching out to new people and listening to their stories and perspectives. In my experience on staff, I’ve realized the importance of free press and unbiased news. I’ve also gained listening and communication skills that will always be of use to me, regardless of what I decide to do in life. Besides writing, I love playing tennis, listening to Spanish music and eating frozen peaches.
