Ebonique Little, Spectrum Editor

My senior quote in my high school yearbook was “HAGS,” so clearly I’m not good at goodbyes, but here I go. 

Last May, I reluctantly heeded the advice of one of my professors who encouraged me to submit a class assignment to The Commonwealth Times. Since then, The CT has become integral to my college experience. 

I’ve found my voice and learned about myself in ways I never knew. An arts major who initially only wanted to write about fashion grew into a confident outlet for Black artists and issues within our community. My contributions as a writer and editor are not only relevant to The CT, but they have also become how I define myself and my purpose. My only regret is not joining sooner. 

I’m thankful for every story assignment that challenged me and each editor I’ve worked with — Iman Mekonen, Hannah Eason, Andrew Ringle and Rachel Rivenbark — who pushed me to be a stronger writer and reporter. To everyone on the CT staff (even the ones I never met face to face), I am eternally grateful.
