Nothing says summer like the arrival of fresh-faced children in our office, bearing lattes in each hand. Thanks, interns! Please welcome this season’s Youngs, in alphabetical order….
Nate Hopper, Reporter, Politics
Nate Hopper is a 20-year-old magazine journalism and economics
dual-major at Syracuse University. He’s reported in South Africa,
written for a bunch of campus publications, and will be the
features editor of one
in his upcoming senior year. In the meantime, he’ll be reading and
writing about interesting things while simultaneously honing his
afternoon nap and drinking-water connoisseurship. Sometimes he
writes a contemporary funk and soul music blog.
Olivia LaVecchia, Reporter, Interviews
Olivia LaVecchia has lived in five different cities this year,
and now she’s living in Brooklyn for the summer. She studies
journalism and poetry at Northwestern, and just finished interning
at Texas Monthly, where she wrote about giant
strawberry shortcakes and interviewed the
pyromaniac kid in Super 8.
Emily Morris, Reporter, Literary Culture
Emily Morris is a senior English major at Smith College. She
spent the last year in Cordoba, Spain, where an English major makes
no sense. She has interned at an art museum and a state-funded film
production company. One time she sold Mary Kay by accident.
Myles Tanzer, Reporter, New York City
Myles Tanzer loves the internet. He interned for Runnin’ Scared at The Village Voice for two semesters. He’s also the entertainment editor of NYU Local. Myles also enjoys cooking his way through the Momofuku Cookbook and studying the discography of Common. He recently moved into a tiny apartment in the East Village. A gin and tonic is his summer drink as well as his winter, spring and fall drink.
