Lead Editor


Hey everyone! My name is Amna, and I am super excited to continue being a part of Sideline this year! I always enjoy getting more involved with the people around me and branching out to try new things with my friends. In my free time, I enjoy making music, going for early morning runs, and getting lost in a good book. I am really looking forward to expanding my knowledge and understanding in these next few years, and I can't wait to learn more from the people around me as well!

Managing Editor


Hello everyone! My name is Amy Chan, and I transferred into the traditional pathway after spending a year and a half as a dual enrolled student. Aside from academics, I enjoy going on hikes, crocheting, and practicing yoga to preserve my flexibility as a former rhythmic gymnast. I’m also an avid baker, and it’s always fun for me to share treats with my friends and family! Sidenote: I, of course, make everything from scratch :) I look forward to working alongside the Sideline team! ​

My first degrees are in literature, and I got my start in academia teaching English at the high school and college levels in the U.S. and Mexico. While pursuing my doctorate, I served as Managing Editor for Techné: Journal for the Society of Philosophy and Technology (https://www.spt.org/techne/). As a contributor, I have been a member of the Social Epistemology Review and Reply Collective (www.social-epistemology.com) since its inception and have had the opportunity to collaborate with scholars/writers from a variety of disciplines. As Faculty Advisor of CHS Sideline since we began in 2017, I have had the opportunity to work alongside a growing group of dedicated students. From this group of contributors, I continue to learn a great deal about writing, video, and audio production in a digital age.
