The Science Survey

Cadence Chen
Cadence Chen is a Staff Reporter for ‘The Science Survey’ and a People Reporter for ‘The Observatory.’ Journalistic writing appeals to her because it unearths the truth to the public. Although Chen has qualms with many news publications and media outlets, she strives to have her journalistic writing feature all angles of a story and be as objective as possible. In addition to writing, journalistic photography complements a journalistic piece of writing because it evokes emotion and inspires a sense of connection in readers that writing cannot communicate. The most miniscule of details that are buried in writing have the opportunity to tug at the reader's heartstrings. Outside of school, Cadence mentors a LEGO Robotics team for a middle school in Manhattan on Fridays. She loves to nurture bonds with the students who she mentors. Also, in her spare time, she enjoys reading papers and listening to podcasts from think tanks on politics and economics. Chen reads and listens to a variety of sources from both sides of the political aisle to give herself a comprehensive look on current events. Seeing different perspectives challenged her initial way of thinking and helped her mature as an independent thinker. Some of her favorite economists, Milton Friedman and Thomas Sowell, have gifted to her a unique perspective on hot button issues of the day and revolutionized her worldview. After gaining perspective on issues that face the world, in the future, she sees herself pursuing either economics or a constitutional law career.
