Farewell Otters

Hello Otters,

I hope everyone had an amazing Spring 2018 semester here at California State University, Monterey Bay (CSUMB), and that everyone continues to have great semesters as your college careers continue for you. I also want to congratulate everyone that is graduating this year in the Class of 2018, as I will be graduating this year as well.

It has been a pleasure getting to be the Editor-in-Chief of such a wonderful newspaper. I really gained a lot of friendships from everyone a part of this amazing team and am so grateful I got to call this group of people my Lutrinae family. I am also glad I was able to gain experience from this opportunity, as I watched the newspaper being redesigned and renamed from the Otter Realm to The Lutrinae.

As I graduate and move back home to Southern California, I hope to use some of the skills I gained to hopefully create a Blog Site and YouTube channel of my own so that I can still continue to work with my passion of journalism. I also plan on looking for a job where I can use my creativity and journalism skills to help that company thrive as well.

This position has helped me gain the experience, knowledge and friendships that have made me grow as a person, and I am so excited to see what the future has for me on my journey through life. I am excited to graduate and become an alumni of such a great school and will try to visit as much as I can. I also congratulate Jessenya Guerra for earning the position of Editor-in-Chief for the next school year, and can’t wait to see what she has in store to help The Lutrinae grow even more.

Farewell Otters, and congratulations to the Class of 2018!
