EDITOR IN CHIEF & TREASURER
Hi North Star Readers! I am the Editor-In-Chief for the magazine. I created and oversee our article submission spreadsheet along with being a copy editor. Politically invested, you will find my articles tapping into the current state of our nation.
FEATURE SECTION EDITOR
Hey, my name is Christina Ossa! I’m editor of the Feature section of North Star, and I revise any articles submitted to the feature section. You’ll usually see my articles about recipes I’ve tried between each issue, I love sharing my commentary on food and recipes!
SCIENCE & TECHNOLOGY SECTION EDITOR
Hey! I'm Elyas Layachi, and I'm the Science section editor. When I was a part of the old North Star, I wrote a variety of articles, ranging from tips and tricks to experiences I've had as a student, but now I primarily write science pieces. Science rocks! When I'm not writing or editing science articles, I'm either reading, running, playing soccer, or spending time with friends.
