Washington Square News

Editor-in-Chief Jemima McEvoy
Jemima McEvoy is the Editor-in-Chief for the Washington Square News, as well as a sophomore studying something to do with politics and law in CAS. She’s originally from England, but has been desperately trying to hold on to her accent for the past few years that she has spent living in the USA. During the time that she doesn’t spend explaining to people that she was not named after a particular brand of syrup (that will remain unnamed for her sanity), she likes singing, pretending to go to the gym and attending concerts for bands that were cool last decade. She likes horses — but not in a weird way — and thinks that you should too.
