Karolina is currently in her junior year at George Mason, studying English with a concentration in Writing and Rhetoric. She also is pursuing a minor in History and one in Psychology. Being a part of Volition allows Karolina to do some of her favorite things: read, write, and edit. She hopes to still work with publications in the future, where she can further defend the importance of the Oxford Comma. When not reading or writing, you can expect to find her with a bagel in one hand and coffee in the other as she lies on the couch watching cheesy rom-coms.
Ayleah is a Junior at Mason majoring in Marketing with a minor in Graphic Design. Joining Volition was an effortless decision for her due to her love for literature, words, and creative individuals. She has an odd obsession with Dylan O’Brien, smoothies, and cereal. Ayleah strives to be the most optimistic person in the room and likes to remind everyone that they are precious cinnamon rolls too great for this world.
Anya is a senior at Mason majoring in Graphic Design. With a penchant for all things art and literature, she knew she had to be a part of Volition. As an International student that grew up in Sri Lanka she often misses the sun and sea at home, but loves spending her time designing, taking pictures, and indulging her obsession with music.
Valerie is a senior at GMU studying Art and Visual Technology with a concentration in photography and a minor in Environmental Science. She is passionate about art and is excited to support student’s art and Volition magazine. Aside from photography, Valerie is fond of traveling, reading, and is regularly drinking iced coffee.
Zaria is a sophomore at George Mason currently majoring in English with a concentration in Writing and Rhetoric. She has a passion for all things literary and hopes to turn this love into a career. Zaria also has an even stronger passion for coffee, preferably iced, and you will almost always see her with a cup of it while catching up on the latest pop culture events.
Lauren is a junior at George Mason, majoring in Government and International Politics with a minor in French. With a secret love for all things prose and poetry, she jumped at the opportunity to join Volition when she found the club. When Lauren is not reading the talented work of her peers at Mason, you can find her with a cup of coffee in hand as she binge-watches her favorite Netflix shows. And she, too, likes to remind people of the importance of the Oxford Comma.
