I'm Leo.

I study journalism, computer science, and design.

About

I'm an undergraduate student at Northwestern University. I expect to graduate with a Bachelor of Science in Journalism by June 2019, along with a major in computer science and a certificate in design from the Segal Design Institute.

I serve as publisher for North by Northwestern, the campus experimental newsmagazine, where I learn and experience what it means to innovate in a news media publication.

I am the sponsorship lead and treasurer of Northwestern Formula Racing. The team constructs a new racecar in the style Formula 1 vehicles to compete in the Michigan Formula SAE competition every year.

I publish a blog titled "Leo in America," where I write about my experiences living in the United States. I often write about topics relating to identity, belonging, and the future of journalism, although not necessarily in that order.

I say "I wrote a thing!" quite a lot. It's usually an expression of surprise.

📝 This is usually what I write about.

The spotlight shines on Northwestern student theater - for lack of diversity | Stories by Leo Ji

The end of September 2017 was probably a bad week for Northwestern student theater. First, the production of Pippin was canceled hours before doors opened to the public due to rights issues; next, Arts Alliance and the Student Theatre Coalition have been involved in a controversy over the casting decisions for one of their shows, scheduled to take place later this fall quarter.
