AWOL

Benjamin S. Weiss
A Junior in International Relations, my areas of interest are IR/foreign policy, politics, social issues — and anything that’s worth writing about. I was drawn to journalism because of my love for writing and a desire to elicit positive social change through the power of the free press.  My motto for journalism is the same as the Aspen Daily News: “If you don’t want it printed, don’t let it happen.”




Fun fact? I'm constantly preparing for the inevitable great powers conflict in our future.
