Writing can be a ridiculously painful thing to endure, but I think that giving it up would be even worse. After all, who doesn’t like a challenge? I’m Alexa Vazquez, this year’s Editor-at-Large and resident senior who’s been on this staff for four years with no signs of stopping now that I’ve gotten this far. You live your life in stories, and as a journalist, I live to tell stories.

Whether it be voicing student outcries for change, or investigating the truths behind district-wide issues clouded in uncertainty, I’m determined to see it all find its place on our pages. Feel free to check out the additional work I’ve done on the San Diego Union Tribune, and look forward to the work I’ll continue to do here on The Crusader.
