Pepper President & Treasure Pepper

I have been a member of Pepper Magazine since Fall 2017--my very first semester at Stout. I am a double-concentration Graphic Design student, so it feels like I've been here forever. I work for University Housing as a graphic designer, so if you live in the dorms, you may have seen my designs! I love plants, coffee, cats, and thrifting clothes since it's #sustainable. Pop rock/punk music brings me life but I like to listen to lots of different genres. If you play animal crossing, come visit my island sometime and grab any free DIY recipes you need :)

If you see me on campus, stop and say hi!

Vice Pepper & Social Pepper

I've been in Pepper since 2017, when someone in a truly inspiring pepper hat introduced the club to the class of incoming freshmen. I knew in that moment that this is where I wanted to be. I am an animation major, but I love layout design and illustration. I also work for dining and am a member of a couple other clubs--so you will definitely see me around! I like watching cartoons with friends, listening to anything from pop punk to sludge metal, and drawing my friends' D&D characters.

Let's make a magazine together!!
