Molly Meeker is a native Coloradan and a Texas transplant. She is studying public relations and often ponders what she will do after college ends. Molly learned to properly arrange letters into words as a little girl in school, but she learned what it meant to write when she began high school. After taking a journalism course her freshman year of college, Molly learned that words could free her more than she ever imagined.

She enjoys cheese and the feeling of crunching leaves under her feet during fall. Molly hates when people stand too close to her in lines and the silence after a goodbye. Molly finds life to be too tumulus to make any solid plans, so her only goal is to realize the moments she is happy in before they pass.

Haley Morrison is a journalism major from Houston, Texas. She is pretty much always down to talk about politics, books and Netflix. In fact, these are probably her most frequent topics of conversation, along with faith and her family (because they’re the cutest). She is always looking for new books to read, new TV shows to watch, and new Starbucks drinks to try (because the love for coffee is all too real).

Haley has been reading and writing for as long as she can remember, and loves the short, concise writing style that comes with journalism. She has always been  a lover of the English language and grammar. She firmly believes in the power of words, which is why she is so excited to work the journalism field. She has worked for a newspaper, and would like to continue working for a paper, magazine or online publication. While Haley isn’t quite sure what she wants to do in journalism in the future, as long as she is writing and learning about people, she is happy. Writing is her creative outlet of choice, and she wouldn’t have it any other way.

Originally from Temple, Texas, Maya moved to Waco to attend a private Catholic high school. With high school drawing to a close, she still was not sure what she wanted to major in. Knowing the fields of math and science were not right for her, she decided to further develop her creative mind by majoring in journalism, with a concentration in news editorial. Since becoming a student at Baylor University, Maya has met a diverse community of students and hopes to take any opportunity college offers her. She hopes one day to work in the book industry and maybe even write her own book.

Like so many others, Maya has succumbed to the powers of Netflix and Hulu. Fun facts about her include being left-handed and playing the flute. A lover of animals, she is susceptible to the innocence and unconditional love dogs have to offer. She loves spending time with family and friends, listening to all kinds of music and getting lost in the literary world.
