Jessica McLaren, Staff Writer

Jessica is a third-year communications major pursuing a digital communications concentration and a professional writing minor. This is her third semester writing for The Paisano. Jessica appreciates the beauty and complexities of the English language, and she has loved to write since she was 9 or 10 years old. Today, Jessica now enjoys writing for her classes and other personal writing projects, writing poetry, and of course, writing for The Paisano. She is passionate about science, journalism and social reform, particularly mental health awareness, reproductive rights, education and other social issues. When not writing, Jessica enjoys reading, looking for and listening to new music on Spotify, spending time with her cat, Jasper, or hanging out with her friends. After graduation, Jessica wants to be a technical writer and have a book or two published; her dream is to write for National Geographic. She hopes to make a difference in the world and inspire other young writers.
