“How are you supposed to talk to people, to get the respect and get them to answer your questions — but not intimidate them? It’s almost an entirely different way of approaching people. That way they can trust you, but also not see you as an informant, even though you are. It’s this weird little double standard of how intimate you can get with people without having to get intimate with them. It’s weird being a reporter, but it’s really fun.” –Elaina Plankey, class of 2023
