Kathryn Mae Post is a junior political science and writing major who occasionally refers to herself in third person. She is passionate about worship leading, being from New Jersey and drinking hazelnut lattes. Additionally, she is highly prone to spontaneous outbursts of song. Kathryn loves the one true triune God with the entirety of her being. She is also fond of Disney movies and discussions about social justice. If you want to stay on her good side,l bribe her with Nutella and refrain from using the word “literally” in the wrong context. Kathryn is exuberant about being on the Chimes staff and hopes to help create both enduring writing and unforgettable memories this year.
