Shikha Patel, Online Editor-in-Chief

Hello! I’m Shikha and I am a current senior. I’m very excited to be one of the Editor-in-Chiefs of the online publication of the Dispatch. This is my third year on staff, and last year I was the online Managing Editor. I look forward to advancing and updating the look of our online publication more. Some things I like doing in my free time are trying out aesthetic and cute coffee places around town, paddle boarding, and calligraphing. I also really enjoy traveling! Unfortunately, due to COVID I haven’t been able to travel this year. But, one of my favorite places I have been is Honolulu, Hawaii and Venice, Italy. I love good quality family time with my pup, Andy. My all time favorite thing in this world is coconut water. I can’t wait to be online EIC this year and work with returning and new staff members to develop high-quality content. Newspaper never fails to amaze me so I cannot wait for this year.
