Syndey Espinosa, whose beat is science, profiles a Bryn Mawr biology professor who has had a life-long fascination with leeches. Yes, leeches.
Tianyuan Zhang, whose beat is culture shock, offers a profile of Sharon Bain, a Russian teacher who grew up experiencing immersion in different cultures, both in America and overseas.
Ariel Kraakman, who covers public art, tells of a Bryn Mawr student who has joined an international movement to anonymously leave small hearts with inspirational messages in random places.
Ivy Gray-Klein, who is covering art and culture, offers a profile of Katy Otto, the drummer of a local group called Trophy Wife.
