Sydney Ter Molen, Staff Writer

I’m Sydney TerMolen, and this is my second year writing for The Evanstonian. I like to write about big issues and how they affect smaller things. Apart from the paper, I play golf for ETHS, and am on the mock trial team here. I’m glad to be in a space where there are many people to learn from. Journalism has played a big part in my life and will definitely prove me useful in life.
