My name is Hanna Jacunski: part-time soap boxer, retired horse girl, unapologetic radical feminist.
I am a recent graduate of the University of Missouri with a Bachelor of Journalism (emphasis in international news reporting). Bylines can be found in the New Europe, Columbia Missourian, The Maneater and the Dallas Morning News. For more information on my journalistic work, check out my online portfolio.
I like Dallas sports, Maya Angelou, striped t-shirts, Yosemite, kayaking, dogs and veggie pizza. I don’t like sharks, chapped lips or packing. I say y’all, hate humidity and function best when it’s sunny outside.
Origin story: Many moons ago, I started this site to fulfill a class requirement. It quickly became an amazing outlet for dialogues on any topic, from my attempts at clean eating to journalism ethics to my creative writing endeavors. It was, and continues to be, a refreshing break from the grind of “news voice” and the stricter confines of style in the newsroom.
Never feel afraid to post a comment, critique or additional reading. Just because I gab on for 1,000 words about how hard it is to write poems doesn’t mean I don’t want to hear from you too. As long as you aren’t overly profane or unnecessarily rude, I will post it. I also appreciate kind grammar corrections (*”Everybody Makes Mistakes” plays softly in the distance*).
Please keep all hands and feet inside the ride at all times, and enjoy your stay.
(Also, if you’re from The Atlantic and reading this: I promise I am very employable and would love to work for y’all. Pretty please.)
