My name is Mylasia Miklas and I am excited to be taking over as Editor-in-Chief of The Nautilus this fall semester.

When I started Texas A&M University at Galveston, I knew I had to leave behind everything I was comfortable with. I quickly realized that the campus and the town had a different dynamic and culture than I’m used to and every face was new. Im sure I wasn’t alone in feeling that way as a freshman. All these thoughts and emotions made me feel like an outcast. It wasn’t until I found my place at the Nautilus when all that changed.

I am a junior here at TAMUG studying marine biology. A career field which would seem completely outside the realm of journalism. I’ve discovered that journalism and science fields can be very similar. Both require strong analytical, research, and writing skills.

I always took pride in my organization abilities but this new position has given me quite the challenge in that area.

All this reminds me that I am a work in progress.

Being a member of the The Nautilus team has allowed me to push myself out of my comfort zone. I get to experience student life from a different angle and meet cool people along the way. I’ve been able to exercise and grow my potential.

As I take over as Editor-in-Chief, I hope to carry on Amanda Barbato, the previous Editor-in-Chief’s, legacy. Amanda Barbato worked tirelessly to transform The Nautilus to what it is today and she will always remain an integral part of this publication’s history.

Throughout this year, I plan to keep the mission of The Nautilus alive. I also hope to make The Nautilus a resource to better connect the student body. We are expanding our social media presence, making The Nautilus available to all students by updating our online publications, and by including a greater student involvement throughout each issue.

We appreciate your continued support of The Nautilus as we grow and expand. I would also like to acknowledge and thank our dedicated staff that has worked so hard to put this first issue together. They are truly what the Aggie spirit is all about. Without them, none of this would have been possible.

With the support of the student body and the dedication of the Nautilus staff, I look forward to seeing what’s in store for us here at TAMUG.
