Hello my name is Asher Hagan, I am a senior at Bowie, and my pronouns are they/them. This year I am the Executive Editor of Art and Graphics and this is my third year on staff. I enjoy making art (obviously). I also like watching movies and binging TV shows. I have two cats named Littie and Momo. I am excited to get to know the people on staff and contribute to a hopefully great newspaper this year!

Shying away from this subject is one of the reasons that so many people don’t have access to the sanitary products they need.
