Hello readers! I’m Kyle Hellmann, an editor for the North Star Reports. I’m an outdoor enthusiast. You’ll find me outside anytime of the year, enjoying the natural beauty of our wonderful planet. I am a Nordic Skier for the College of Saint Scholastica. Along with that, I enjoy reading and writing about the environment. I also share what I’ve learned in the process, much to the annoyance of my friends. I’m a history major, and I plan to go into the world of environmental policy. My dream job would be a lobbyist…

My name is David Miller, and I am entering my senior year at the College of St. Scholastica this coming fall. I am a secondary education and history major, and I intend to graduate in the spring of 2016. This is my first year on the editorial team with the North Star Report. I was raised and attended high school in Rogers, Mn. As I grew up in Rogers I always had an interest in learning and that is a big reason for me going into the teaching profession. My interest has always been in history and that is mostly because I had amazing teachers along the way to help develop that interest. The College of St. Scholastica has done an…

Morgans NSR Pic

My name is Morgan Young. I am currently a senior history major, intended to graduate fall semester of 2015 from St. Scholastica. This is my first year writing for the North Star Reports, though I have been annotating Facebook articles since the beginning of spring semester.

I was born in Watertown, New York, to a military family, and thus have lived in a few states around the country, such as Oklahoma, and Georgia. The only foreign country I have lived in is Germany. We were stationed in Babenhausen when I was two. As expected, I am a huge history buff. My interests revolve mostly around modern history, since 1492. Ancient history is, dare I say, a bit too boring for me…

Chris Rehkamp, NSR Social Media Editor. The College of St. Scholastica, graduated 2009 with a BA in Language and International Studies (now GCL). I began my involvement with The Middle Ground Journal shorty after returning from Spain in 2012 while living in Lincoln, Nebraska.

I spend most of my time working in some portion of the food system. From growing plants and building gardens to helping foodie entrepreneurs in the Washington, DC area develop their business’. I first became interested in food as a social justice and economic issue globally while working with the Student Campaign for Child Survival. Later, while working on farms I gained a great respect for the labor and love that goes in to our agricultural system…

My name is Bao Vang and I’m a sophomore at the College of Saint Scholastica. I am currently pursuing in a double major of Marketing Management. My intended graduation year is May 2017. My start date as a NSR social media editor was May 2015.

I was born and raised in Minnesota my whole life. My hometown is Brooklyn Center which is a suburb about 30 minutes away from the cities. The first time I actually traveled out of Minnesota was when I went to London in 7th grade. I always find it funny how I traveled and visited aboard before I actually traveled out of state. I am very artistic so I paint a lot during my free time. I…

Katherine LaFleur, NSR Social Media Editor. Three years ago, as a nursing-intended freshman at the College of St. Scholastica, I severely doubted that I would ever find my niche in such a small school smack-dab in the center of my hometown. “Oh, I thought you went away for school,” was a phrase I oft heard from acquaintances after that first semester at university. Now, as a senior Global, Cultural and Language studies major finishing up minors in Spanish and management I’m thankful for the education I’ve received and the connections I have made along the way.

I began writing for the North Star Reports for same reason many of the other student editors chose to: Professor Liang asked me to. Being a…

Hannah Jean Kunde, NSR Assistant Editor. Major: Natural Science. Minor: Biology. Institutional Affiliation: The College of St. Scholastica. Graduation: 2016. Middle Ground Journal: 2014, North Star Reports: 2015

I have always been a naturally curious person. Even in college, I have always been the person to raise their hand, to stay after class, and take advantage of my professors’ office hours. This has not only pushed me into my major, but also fueled my love of history. Despite thinking that history and biology couldn’t have anything in common, it couldn’t be farther from the truth. Both areas have not only taught me to ask the bigger questions, but laid the foundation for my future studies. As I head towards my final…
