¡Hola! Molly is the name taking pictures is the game. I’m a senior majoring in journalism with a concentration in photojournalism and I’m also minoring in anthropology. I’m Photo Editor of the DEN. When I’m not looking through the lens, I’m spending time with my 2-year-old, doing schoolwork, or starting a revolution.

P.S. I’m ironically not photogenic… don’t judge.
