Nora Miller, Executive Editor

Hi! My name is Nora Miller (she/her). I'm a senior, and an Executive Editors for The Evanstonian, overseeing the Arts & Entertainment, Feature, and Photo & Art sections. In my four years on The Evanstonian staff, I have written, illustrated, and served as an Entertainment columnist and Arts & Entertainment editor. In my free time, I love taking walks in the forest preserve, drawing my friends and family, and cooking vegan meals. The Evanstonian energizes me because I'm able to share the stories of my classmates and citizens of the Evanston community.
