Hilltop Views

Gianni Zorrilla
I am Gianni Zorrilla — Communication major, Journalism and Digital Media minor and Editor-in-Chief of Hilltop Views. I have previously served as the Life and Arts Editor and a staff writer. This is my junior year at St. Edward's University. Writing has been an unshakable passion of mine for as long as I can remember. I am excited to reside in and report on a city as culturally rich, exciting and inspiring as Austin as I am originally from New York City. When not writing, much of my time is dedicated to music, loved ones and campus involvement.
