Letter From the Creative Director

it is truly so scary to be vulnerable with someone. letting your guard down for the first time is the ultimate test of whether you can trust someone. 

it’s been hard for me to be vulnerable to people—i’m still learning, but the Observer has definitely created a safe space for us to be vulnerable, and i am so proud of everyone who has been vulnerable this year. look! i’m even being vulnerable right now just writing this.

it takes so much emotional strength to open up to someone—let alone in a magazine for thousands of people on campus to read. being vulnerable is the ultimate tool when it comes to writing. you are true to yourself and that’s what makes the observer so raw, beautiful, and authentic. i genuinely love that the observer is a community where you can feel seen, heard, and understood. 

i have been so privileged to be a part of such an amazing community this past year. 

while i have to say a quick goodbye for a semester, i’m so glad to have met you. 

with love,

angela <3
