I'm Leo.

I study journalism, computer science, and design.

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

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

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.

You are Northwestern. - Leo in America

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I - I took the one less traveled by,And that has made all the difference. - "The Road Not Taken" by Robert Frost Just over two years ago, I learned I was accepted into Northwestern. It remains one of the most pivotal moments in my life.

Fact Check: No, Northwestern doesn't prohibit students from graduating if they haven't paid parking fines

At a meeting of the Evanston City Council Monday night, 3rd Ward Alderwoman Melissa Wynne claimed Northwestern University does not allow students to graduate if they have not paid university parking tickets. "I'm sure Northwestern doesn't let students graduate who owe Northwestern parking tickets.
