Hilltop Views

Christine Sanchez
Hi all! My name is Christine Sanchez, I'm one of the EICs for Hilltop Views. I'm currently a senior studying Journalism & Digital Media with a minor in Spanish here at St. Edward's. I started reporting for Hilltop Views as a freshman and eventually became a staff writer my sophomore year. While staff writing, I joined the social media/web editing team, where I learned a great deal about online analytics, audience interaction and web design. Last year I served as news editor. I'm passionate about journalism because it promotes seeking truth and justice. I enjoy writing for all sections, though I'm particularly drawn to news and social justice. In my free time, I like exploring Austin and spending time with friends and family.
