Fiona Vosper, Staff Writer

Hi! My name is Fiona Vosper (she/her). I am a sophomore and I mainly write for the sports and opinion sections. I have been writing for The Evanstonian since my freshman year and love contributing to this amazing community of writers. The Evanstonian has strengthened my passion for writing and has also opened my eyes to many different perspectives within Evanston and beyond. Outside of The Evanstonian, I am also a varsity cross-country runner and soccer player. Additionally, I am a facilitator for the EMERGE Initiative club. In my free time, I love to explore bookstores and go on long runs by the beach.
