The CT Staff

EXECUTIVE EDITOR

Georgia Geen
Georgia is a junior pursuing dual degrees in print/online journalism and Spanish with a certificate in Spanish/English Translation and Interpretation. When she’s feeling academic, she enjoys studying nationalism, identity, linguistics and maps. She was an editorial intern at Richmond Magazine and hopes to work one day as a foreign correspondent in Latin America (or build a house of cards with her degrees, whichever comes first). In the little free time she has, Georgia enjoys reading and doing her perfect eyebrows.

Nia Tariq

Nia is pursuing a degree in mass communications with a focus in broadcast journalism, as well as a minor in psychology. After her graduation in December 2019, she plans to continue her education in pursuit of a master’s degree and get her feet wet in the field as a reporter for a local news station. One day, you will see Nia writing comedy and anchoring shows such as Weekend Update or The Daily Show. In the meantime, she will continue to fill up her schedule instead of the void and hide her mildly above-average singing voice behind the safety of her shower curtain.

Ryan Rich — Design Editor 
Ryan is 6’2” and 170 pounds. He is a Leo, but for the record doesn’t think that has any bearing on his life at all. [Editor’s note: his executive editor thinks he is wrong.] He enjoys cooking, cartooning, making cocktails and playing with his cat, Scott.
