The Southerner

Erika Peterson
Erika Peterson is a junior in her third year on The Southerner. Previously serving as the Arts and Entertainment editor, she is now excited to be editing Features. Erika is very passionate about social change and history. She enjoys being a part of the Southerner staff because she likes contributing to the collective effort it takes to run The Southerner. She’s okay with the additional work that comes with being an editor because she is passionate about quality journalism, and appreciates the opportunity she has since not a lot of schools have a newspaper class. She hopes to one day take her passion for journalism into a career as an investigative journalist, or go a different route and work in international diplomacy.
