The Rubicon

Annika Rock
Annika Rock is a News Editor at RubicOnline. This is her second year on staff. During quarantine, she has been taken daily walks around her neighborhood and has been watching tons of movies to pass the time away. She has also been painting to expand her creative side and create art to display around the house. She has been communicating with friends on the internet and plays with her dogs every day.  When thinking about her role on staff and being a journalist in general, Annika remembers the quote said by Voltaire, “I do not agree with what you have to say, but I’ll defend to the death your right to say it.” Annika can be reached at [email protected]
