Meet the Staff
Collide is a publication of The Clause, a multimedia student voice of undergraduate Azusa Pacific University. Our stories seek to bring people together on our pages where ideas collide and stories impact readers. We provide narratives, inquiries and dialogue in a Christian academic setting that values individual’s stories as well as community concerns. Our writers are student-journalists interested in crafting articles that connect with readers and challenge them to grow as people and reporters.
COLLIDE FALL 2012 EDITORIAL STAFF
Chelsea Johnson | Editor-in-Chief
Chelsea is a senior English major. She enjoys poetry that isn’t about love, Harry Potter, and is convinced that one day she will become a Jedi Master. Her spare time is spent petting her cat and acquiring useless information — for example, a ragamuffin is a type of cat.
Mark Miller | Online Editor
Mark is a junior journalism and Spanish double-major. He is from Lancaster, Penn. and loves traveling, speaking different languages, spending time outside writing poetry and filming silly videos with his friends.
Megan Laber | Art Director
Megan is a senior journalism major who depends on coffee and thoughts of kittens to get through her day. She loves French films that end tragically and Lana Del Rey. She enjoys listening to new music, editing photos and eating jalapeño flavored chips. She loves discussing topics like politics, feminism and media influences on the youths.
C. Amaris Felton | Copy Editor
Chelsea is a junior English major with a minor in journalism. She enjoys writing poetry of all kinds and reading, which probably seems typical for someone with her major. When she graduates maybe a semester after her designated date, she plans to become the editor of a magazine or a book publisher — maybe both. When she’s not doing things for Collide, she’s probably studying or being crazy with her roommates. Fun stuff!
Danielle Ahn | Advertising Representative
Danielle is a double-major in finance and communications who enjoys traveling and reading 18th and 19th century European literature, and strongly dislikes talking in the third person. Remember her name. She’s taking over the world. It’s a good thing.
Chelsey Barmore| Publicist
Tim Posada| Faculty Advisor
Jennifer Cline| Contributing Writer
Jennifer is a senior English major minoring in French and Psychology. She enjoys traveling to foreign countries, writing and reading young adult literature and attempting D.I.Y. projects that she finds on Pinterest. Her next project is learning to crochet cute, tiny animals.
Ashley Cameron| Contributing Writer
Ashley is a sophomore English writing major with a minor in pre-law. She enjoys writing murder mystery stories and shopping. She is also one of those crazy people who love to get up early in the morning to exercise.
Josh Bligh| Contributing Writer
Josh is a senior English major and psychology minor who wakes up each morning to a picture on his wall of Jimi Hendrix staring at him and giving him motivation for the day. He reads way too much and lacks organizational skills. Of all animals on earth, his favorite is the panda, and he looks forward to the day that he will be able to befriend one.
Maddie Shook| Contributing Writer
Maddie is a sophomore journalism major. She enjoys swing dancing, Disneyland, sour candy, anything that sparkles and being a human database of pop culture trivia.
Lauren Williams | Contributing Writer
Lauren is a senior journalism major and knows she’ll never make money in her field. She lived in three different countries this past year, thinks the best drink at Starbucks is chocolate milk and has a love-hate relationship with romance. In the future she sees herself as a successful CEO of a major company or a mom; either way she’s the boss.
Kelsey O’Brien | Contributing Writer
Kelsey is a senior communication major with a minor in journalism. She is from Dana Point, Calif. and has a large passion for traveling and spending quality time with her day and friends. She also wants to own her own event-planning business or be a part of an organization. She can’t wait to graduate hopefully to backpack through the world and see more of the places she has yet to see.
