Quick bio: 

Joash is the editor of The Courier. Joash served as news editor for the paper last year. He describes himself as a news junkie and loves to follow media news and pop culture.

Five things about me:

  1. Studying: Mass communications
  2. Guilty pleasure: Watching “Long Island Medium”
  3. On my playlist: Janelle Monae, Fitz and the Tantrums, Kanye West, Lady Gaga, Jessie Ware
  4. Caffeine source: Coffee and more coffee.
  5. Claim to fame: I had a Pope Francis-related tweet that made it to ABC 7 news.

A final thought:

“I’m the very first staff member highlighted here in our Courier Notebook (that’s because I happen to manage this section.) We’re going to feature various editors and staff members in the coming weeks, as I believe it’s important for College of DuPage’s stakeholders to get to know who’s behind their student newspaper. And, of course, we continue to encourage our readers to contribute to the conversation by discussing issues and raising questions to our staff members.”
