Dear Brenda,
Thank you for being such an extraordinary editor and person. We have gotten close this year and I’m forever thankful. Even though I am a handful, you have somehow found a way to put up with my annoying, pessimistic self.
Your optimism is what struck a chord with me. Even when we were “stranded” in San Francisco, you stayed calm and positive the entire time. It’s impossible for you to ever look upset, I swear. You are always able to look on the bright side and encourage others which makes you an exemplary leader. Optimism is something that I lack in, but you’ve shown me the importance of being optimistic.
Your passion for what you do is overwhelming. You put your best effort into whatever you do whether it’s putting together a page or doing calculus homework. You’re involved in many extracurriculars and the idea that you’re able to balance it all is beyond me. You manage to prioritize and “do what’s difficult”-Gentz.
I’ve gotten used to seeing you nearly everyday, and ranting about our struggles in calculus. We’ve had math together pretty much every semester, and when I found out that you were going to be in a different hour this last semester, I was crushed. I can’t imagine how next year is going to be since I won’t see you every day, but you can look forward to calls and texts periodically from me.
From working on multiple pages and taking over stories for others, you have both shown me exactly what an editor should be, and I hope I’m able be a fraction of what you are next year.

I’m not ready to say goodbye to our indesign inside jokes (basic feather) and accidental shoe twinning, but most importantly— I’m not ready to say goodbye to you, so I won’t. Feel free to come literally anytime and brighten up everyone’s days.
