Benjamin S. Weiss
I'm a senior in SIS, and I joined AWOL as a first-year. I think that AWOL is in a unique position as a student media org to speak truth to power on campus and in the community at large, and I hope that my leadership inspires my team to achieve those objectives every day.

I joined AWOL with zero journalism experience, and nearly everything I know about the craft I learned through this org. The hard-hitting investigative journalism AWOL produces informed my aspriation to pursue foreign correspondence as  career.

I hope reading our work inspires you as much as it did me.
