The Science Survey

Kate Reynolds, Staff Reporter

Kate Reynolds is currently an Editor-in-Chief for ‘The Science Survey,’ and was a Groups Editor for 'The Observatory' yearbook during the 2019-2020 academic year. She loves journalistic writing because it holds people in power accountable for their actions and sheds light on the experiences of the most marginalized and vulnerable groups. Kate wants to use her journalistic writing to search for the truth about difficult topics, to allow for the inclusion of forgotten perspectives, and to improve the world. She loves journalistic photography because it makes writing more human and more real, by providing an image and face to the news that people can connect with. Her passion for politics and student activism has inspired her to join the Youth Community Leadership Council, a group which focuses on increasing youth civic engagement, and to become the President of Current Events Forum, a club for discussing and debating politics. She is also captain of the Bronx Science Public Forum debate team, where she has had the opportunity to learn about the news and foreign affairs in-depth and guide the students on the team. Her favorite movies include 'The Florida Project,' 'Ferris Bueller’s Day Off,' and the movie that inspired her love of journalism, 'All the President’s Men.' Her favorite books are 'Road Trip Rwanda,' 'Into the Wild,' and 'All the Light We Cannot See.' In college, Kate plans on studying political science, history, or law. Kate is eager to pursue a career that lets her contribute to the common good, whether it is through public service, political journalism, or historical research.

Tenzin Dadak 21 believes that the UK’s electoral system is flawed because “it allows for the party that wins the most seats, rather than the most votes, to hold power.
