Hi! My name is Noah Tesfaye and I’m a rising second-year at the University of Chicago, based in Silicon Valley. I’m a proud is a first generation Ethiopian-Eritrean American citizen and journalist who focuses on writing about politics, race, and culture.
Currently, I’m a columnist at the Chicago Maroon. I also write a weekly blog reflecting on politics, music, anc college life.
Previously, I was the Los Altos High School Talon Newspapers’ Web Managing Editor and Editorial Intern at the Los Altos Town Crier, covering local and national politics, as well as student life. I also was a contributing writer at the UChicago Institute of Politics’ The Gate Political Journal
