Hey! I’m Andi the Publishing Editor for The Reflector this year! I’m in my final year of my journalism major, and my third year as an editor here! Other editors will tell you I have an affinity for the niche and sundry, so lucky for me my job is getting to read a little bit of everything. I’m happily a mediocre jack-of-all-trades, currently trying to learn the broader points of mountaineering, and how to bake the perfect gourgère (cheese puff). You can find me haunting The Reflector offices, or marching laps around campus with a coffee in hand, but don’t let my pace stop you! You can chat me up about story ideas, or tell me what happened in your favourite podcast any time. If a more sedentary encounter is your speed, come drop by the office or you can shoot me or any of the other editors an email!
Hello everyone! My name is Nathan Woolridge and I am returning as your Reflector News Editor again this year. I am entering the final year of my degree in communications with a major in journalism and a minor in political science. In my spare time, I run a podcast called The Red Mile and enjoy watching movies and going out with friends! I also enjoy writing and working on articles and can often be found working at school at all hours of the day. I am excited to return to The Reflector this year with new ideas for articles and work with the new team of editors. If you have any story ideas or want your MRU-related event or topic covered, don’t hesitate to reach out. I am always available to talk about stories!
Hey! My name is Isabelle, but as my ages-old Instagram bio reads, “call me Izzy, call me Belle, just don’t call me late for dinner.” I’m a fourth-year journalism student at MRU and I’m excited to finish off my degree with the opportunity to experience the fun and freedom that comes with my role as Features Editor. I’m “that girl” who’s all-too melodramatic things she hates and a die-hard defendant of things she loves, opinions I’m excited to channel through this platform in a way that will hopefully make readers laugh a little and think a lot. I love trail running, exploring new recipes for my Instant Pot, taking pictures of people, and so much more you’ll be hearing lots throughout my time here. Stay tuned!
I’m Sarah Green, your new Arts Editor! If you ever need to find me on short notice, chances are I am holed up in a coffee shop somewhere, typing up a storm or procrastinating on Pinterest. I am a lover of all things art and design, yet writing has always been my ultimate passion. I grew up in England (yes, I still have a British accent), which sparked my incessant need to travel and expanded my understanding on the significance of storytelling. I’m currently entering my fourth and final year of journalism after interning at Dote Magazine over the summer. After gaining much experience in a real-world publishing environment, I am thrilled to start writing for this incredible platform!
Hey how’s it going, it’s your boy Dan!
I’m thrilled to be back as The Reflector’s Sports Editor for the third straight year. I’ve worked for the MRU Cougars for the past two years and look to continue to share stories about our fantastic Cougar athletes and keep the campus up to date with the latest updates and information on our varsity teams!
Any contributions to the sports section are welcome! If there’s an even in sports or an issue you want to voice your opinion on, this is the place for you!
Hi! I’m Riggs Zyrille Vergara, a broadcast media studies student who’s excited to be your new Photo Editor. Most of my academic life, I’ve always been writing, so delving myself deeper into the world of photography and illustrations will be a challenging yet thrilling path for me. I might be one of the most unstylish and untalkative gay guys you’ll ever meet, but don’t hesitate to approach me especially if you want to talk about documentaries, spoken word poetry, pop culture and just life in general. You can usually see me just bawling my eyes out watching Netflix’s Queer Eye on my phone or laptop in the library, if I’m not typing away some assignments. As this is my first year both in my program and this platform, I hope we make the best out of it!

Hi! I’m Rose De Souza, this year’s Reflector Web Editor! Having spent two years writing for The Reflector, I am very excited to take on this new role and share the stories of our new writers and editors to all of you online!
For the past four years, I have worked for The Calgary Journal, interned for communications in forestry at British Columbia and worked for another online magazine called The Rocky Mountain Bride. In my spare time, you’ll see me reading or writing stories and sipping on what could be my fourth cup of tea of the day!
As I approach my last year in journalism, I hope to serve our student publication well by updating you on the relevant issues discussed within our newsroom and bring you closer to the information we avail on our newsstands and online!
