Tianne Johnson, Deputy Culture Editor

Tianne Johnson is a New Orleans native and professional multitasker. With a love for all things New York and an even greater love for meeting new people, she's typically in the Greenwich Village area juggling multiple creative projects and ready to have meaningful conversations. She found her way to the WSN Office her freshman year as a contributing writer and fell in love with interviewing people for articles. Now, as Deputy Culture Editor, she hopes to push for a more inclusive, aware, and conversationally engaged culture around campus. If you see her (and her snacks — because she always has snacks) around, make sure to say hi!
