Changing Plans

Veronica Iseminger, Staff Writer May 22, 2022

I am loud.

Katie Jensen, Staff Writer May 20, 2022

As I am constantly being told that I am a “chatty Kathy” or that “my voice carries,” I can sometimes be discouraged with myself. I’ll be the first to admit that I am a loud person, and I may...
