Editor’s Note

One of the desires of a reporter is to be allowed to write about what one loves, though often such a scenario is not the case. This is why, when I introduced the concept of “Beyond” to this year’s staff, I gave them free reign over their story ideas. “Write about
whatever you’d like,” I said. “Anything at all.”

As a result, all of the articles within this magazine are personalized; the writers share a little bit about themselves with you. Their thoughts, likes, and memories are yours to experience. My hope is that one day you’ll allow us to share in yours. -Amanda
