“We proudly stand on the shoulders of those who came before us.”

—The Paper

Before serving as the Editor at The Paper. I was a writer and designer under the previous Editor-in-Chief, Leilani Goodwin. Leilani, like myself, found ourselves questioning the reality of our social, political, and economic lives. The Paper is the place where I have merged my passion of media communication with social justice.

As Editor-in-Chief, my number one job at The Paper is to get people involved in the community we live. To get people who come in contact with The Paper to think about how their actions can impact the world for the better or worse. The Paper has changed my life because it has connected to a hub of talented individuals whose voices are among some of the most empathetic of our generation.  In my future career, making a difference leveling the playing field through a variety of different policies and principles is a pivotal guiding philosophy me.


“and when we speak we are afraid/our words will not be heard/nor welcomed/but when we are silent/we are still afraid/So it is better to speak.”

—Audre Lorde, A Litany for Survival  

I joined The Paper as Managing Editor because I was inspired by the mission and legacy of the organization when Professor Linda Villarosa introduced our Race and Media class to the history behind the mission. Kacy George, the Editor in Chief, encouraged me to join and help the define the future of the organization in the wake of our current status and legacy we stand on. The Paper is the place to connect with and share the many talented voices and perspectives our City College community contains. I would love for the Paper continue to amplify the diverse and unique lives of our campus members and the surrounding community to a wider audience. Sharing, listening, and learning from one another is the only way to grow together.

Social Media Manager

After understanding what The Paper represents, that it is a place for unheard voices, I knew this was where I wanted to write and create.” The Paper is a community of people who have ideas of what the world could be and can be, I am lucky to be part of that community. In life, I hope to create positive change using creativity and big ideas to make big changes. I have coined a title for my career, I want to be a Creative Consultant for Change. Cool, right? Basically, I just want to change the world. Another chapter begins at The Paper.


I joined The Paper to continue breaking boundaries and raise questions that others do not approach.  The Paper provides an outlet for students to engage with their fellow peers. As the treasurer, Lena ensures The Paper has the necessary resources to continue operations and share a voice. It is important to seek guidance from others and accept help when given, as there is strength in numbers when facing social injustices.  I imagine the voice of The Paper to be one that strikes attention to stimulating topics not being covered, upholding diversity of ideas, bringing attention to the importance of social justice and being a safe space to exchange social, political and economic ideas.

One thought on “The Team

  1. Actually The Paper dates from 1970 forward. Also, the name Louis Reyes Rivera (among a few other omissions) needs to be added to the list – he was one of the founders of The Paper, along with Paul Simms and Francee Covington. Suggest putting an asterisk by their names to indicate their status as one of the three founders of The Paper. Happy to discuss further.
