Contributing writer Chloe Murdock is a junior who is studying journalism and international studies with a concentration in global cultural relations. After she initially majored in strategic communication she tried to avoid writing for The Student, but the siren’s call of potential stories in Oxford, Ohio, pulled her in and convinced Chloe to change her major. Her first story was about crying over cold tortillas out of homesickness, and since then she has written culture, opinion and news articles on topics ranging between a speech from one of the Central Park Five and how a single student decided to spend Valentine’s Day. Chloe also regularly writes and edits “slow journalism” pieces for The Miami Student Magazine. She also juggles a remote marketing internship, executive board decisions on Miami’s martial arts club and a purple belt in taekwondo. Her favorite stories are the ones that motivate people to feel or do something after reading.
