Opinion Editor

Hi there! I am Megan Kelly, a senior Math major with a Management minor. While I love solving problems and challenging my brain, I find relaxation and comfort in writing. After I graduate, I hope to incorporate my problem solving and communication skills [written and oral] to find a job that I love. My goal is to influence others and grow individually as well.

Politics Editor

I am Hugo Castro, the Politics Editor for the Promethean. I’m currently a senior with a major in Political Science and a certificate in Pre-Law studies. I love to write and engage in open discussions concerning contemporary, political and social issues. I look forward to a fun and productive semester with the Promethean and informing campus on today’s most pressing, political news.

Sports Editor

I am Julianna Sebastian and I am the sports section editor! I have lived in Buffalo, NY my whole life, and hoping to return there after college. I am an English Major with minors in broadcasting and Spanish. I am also a member of Siena College’s Division 1 swim team. I enjoy all types of sports, from basketball, football, to more unique olympic sports. I love everything sports talk, and would hopefully like to work as a sportscaster someday for a TV affiliate. My favorite teams are of course the Buffalo Bills and also the L.A. Dodgers because once I met Clayton Kershaw at a hotel I was staying at in Phoenix, Arizona, so now naturally we are best friends. Other than sports, you can usually find me in the MAC swimming with my team or working out. Also, I am in the library a lot writing papers. I love practicing yoga, listening to music, and spending time with my friends. If you have story ideas for my section, email me at!
