Meet Our Editors

Reem Abouchleih, General Editor


Reem is a second-year student at Clark. She’s a student double majoring in psychology and biology (probably). In her spare time, she’s usually hanging out with friends, watching weird movies on Netflix, and finding beautiful spots in nature

Luis Santos, News Editor 

Luis is a senior studying English with a concentration in Africana Studies and Latin American and Latino Studies. Luis made his debut at The Scarlet having written a news article on squirrels (who knew squirrels could be newsworthy!). Beyond academics, he is a copy editor for SURJ and teaches as an ESOL instructor. In his downtime, Luis enjoys creative writing, running, traveling, and absolutely loves dogs!

Matt Rushford, Living Arts Editor


Matt is entering his second semester writing for the Scarlet, and his first as the living arts editor. A history major, Matt enjoys the simple things in life, such as hiking, birdwatching, and listening to music. When he tries to be less boring, you can see Matt around campus having a good time, at Clark University Film and Screening Society (CUFSS) explaining why watching the movie “Surf’s Up” is an inalienable right.

Annie SinertOpinions Editor

Annie is entering her third semester writing for The Scarlet and her first as the Opinions Editor. She is a Political Science major with a concentration in American Government. Aside from The Scarlet, she is on the Tikkun Olam (repairing the world) committee in Hillel and is the Social Media Marketing Chair for Challah For Hunger. She is currently on a mission to find the best coffee shop in Worcester, though, as a New Englander, she believes Dunkin’ will always reign supreme.
