In their third year in MacJournalism, Morgan Eye will serve the staff as one of two social media managing editors and opinion section editors. Eye believes that the best thing they can do as a journalist is to tell the stories of people whose stories are untold or under-represented. Eye first demonstrated a knack for storytelling when creating an award-winning broadcast news piece chronicling the struggles of high school freshmen during their year of pandemic-induced virtual schooling. The piece, “The Fish are Drowning,” was published nationally by PBS Student Reporting Labs and became one of the first MacJournalism broadcast packages to earn an NSPA Best of Show award. Eye continued telling powerful, underrepresented stories this summer when they were the top student in their class at Boston University’s Summer Journalism Academy. While many of their peers chose to write news stories about national events, Eye opted to tell the story of Vivian Luo, a.k.a.‘violinviiv’, a financial analyst turned street-violinist who battled a rare disease (acanthamoeba keratitis) to pursue her life’s passion for music. Eye hopes to continue telling stories that matter for her remaining two years in MacJ and beyond.

Jones raps at Tunnel Vision in April of 2022. Jones hopes to keep music on his path, no matter where it takes him. Ive noticed that its kind of harder to do music full time, Jones said. But, realistically, I would have a regular job and maybe the rapping on the side.
