Tatiana Walk-Morris, a senior journalism major and management minor at Columbia College Chicago, lives in a cozy studio in the Gold Coast/Near North neighborhood. Fun fact: She can speak German fluently enough to order food and interview German soccer fans. In five years, she hopes to be at a newspaper or magazine in Chicago or Detroit, reporting on boring, important beats like business, justice or social issues.

Karina Corona is a third-year journalism student at Columbia College Chicago, concentrating in magazine writing and editing with a minor in photography and an unofficial minor in art history. She is a resident of the Logan Square neighborhood. Karina sees herself one day working for a travel magazine and having significantly less debt with the U.S. Department of Education.
