About Anna Hawkins

Hi, I'm Anna Hawkins, and I'm Chief Opinions Editor for The Peanut. I'm currently studying Marine Science & Biology at the University of Alabama. I think life should be an adventure, and I do my best to make even mundane things feel more exciting. I'm a fan of cats, except for the hairless ones. I also love writing. Welcome to The Peanut!
