My name is Sophia Mattimiro and I’m currently a senior studying Writing and Publishing. Writing has always been a passion of mine and being a part of The Candor is helping fulfill a childhood dream. I’m excited to see where The Candor goes as we continue to grow.
News Editor/Investigative Team
I’m a junior Communications major with a passion for broadcast journalism. I started working for the newspaper as a sophomore staff writer and later became the editor of the Investigative Team. I am now the current editor of the BU news section. In addition to editing/ fact-checking, I spend much of my time talking to students/staff around campus- attaining quotes and understanding what issues need to be spotlighted. I enjoy writing for the candor because we write about events and ideas that bring the school community together.
My name is Zaakirah and I’m so excited to start this new section for The Candor. I went from staff writer, to investigative editor, to news editor and not to be video producer/ editor is a dream come true. I believe my experience with our TV news show Eye of the Eagle has prepared me to be the solid reporter I need to be for this section. I’m a senior now and after graduation I hope to be a TV field reporter.

My name is Joey Spahn and I am a sophomore here at Benedictine. I am a Communications Arts Major with a concentration in sports.

I plan on expanding my sports writing abilities along with learning more about the teams and student-athletes on campus.
My name is Dielle Ochotorena and I’m currently a senior majoring in Psychology. Writing and reading have always been part of my life and I’m glad to put them to use other than ranting all over the internet. I’m excited to work with The Candor as the Perspective Editor.
