Kayleigh Silverstein, Special Projects Managing Editor, News Writer

Kayleigh has been at the Chronicle since their freshman year, and has found it to be one of the best college experiences so far. Even though she is a senior, she has no idea what she wants to be "when she grows up." She is currently studying Spanish and sociology, with a potential interest in pursuing journalism after graduation. Kayleigh is originally from New Jersey, which she thinks is the most interesting thing about her. She likes to be outside, thoroughly enjoys the color green and will not be the slightest bit upset if you send her photos of your cats.
