The Shield Online

Lucy Marco
Lucy Marco, a junior and a second year staff member for the Shield, is taking on the roles of co-people editor and co-online editor this year. She decided to join newspaper so she could explore how it works to be a journalist, improve her writing skills, and be a part of the lovely and talented mac journalism community. Her favorite pieces to write are feature profiles and new editions to her online-exclusive blog.

Marco moved to Austin from the French Alps when she was around 4 years old. In her free time, she enjoys making art, collecting old photographs, putting together outfits, petting her cats, cooking, baking, listening to music, FaceTiming her boyfriend in Ireland, watching good movies and going on walks. Recently, she has been very into listening to news podcasts and keeping herself up to date with what's going on in the country, as well as educating herself on the systemic injustices towards minorities and BIPOC. Since Corona, she has spent lots of time planning out her future, going outside, and watching her favorite show twice, Madmen.
She is very excited for this year of newspaper and can’t wait to see what the future holds.
