My name is Meilan Solly, and I am a senior at the College of William and Mary. I study English through the William and Mary/University of St Andrews Joint Degree Programme.

I’ve been a student journalist for more than seven years. During my junior year, I served as the editor-in-chief of The Saint, St Andrews’ student newspaper. This summer, I interned at Smithsonian magazine. Currently, I serve as The Flat Hat‘s chief staff writer.

Here, you’ll find examples of my work for both student and professional publications, including SmithsonianThe Saint, The Flat Hat and Kiplinger’s Personal Finance.
