Investigative Editor Lexi Faunce
Lexi Faunce is a junior studying journalism and politics, and she will be joining WSN this semester as the Investigative News Editor. She hails from the glamorous town of Gainesville, Florida (also known as Tim Tebow Land). When everyone else is out trying to score Hamilton tickets, you can catch her watching the Gators demolish the SEC. An avid lover of the Second Amendment, you’ll want to stay on the good side of this curly-headed Cuban. Peep her Twitter to check out all the right-wing news NYU kids aren’t talking about.
