The Daily Eastern News

Analicia Haynes
Hello, my name is Analicia Carmen Haynes and I’m a journalism major and the Managing Editor for The Daily Eastern News. I absolutely love to write, however this year I decided to explore other modes of media and dip my toes into design and copy editing (with that said so far so good). On a side note, I’m a music fanatic and history buff. I spend much of my free time waist deep in history inspired novels or movies or listening to my records. My record collection is well over 100 and I continue to add more as the months crawl eloquently by. My goals for now aside from graduating with flying colors is to make the most of my college career and acquire as much experience (and expertise) as I can while working for the DEN.  

Analicia Haynes, Managing Editor
