Nathan Zhu, Sports Editor

Hi, I'm Nathan! This is my second year on staff and my first year as the Sports Editor. One of my favorite things to do is watch and analyze sports, but what I especially love is learning about the story behind athletes. I'm so excited to illuminate stories behind Dunbar's amazing athletes this year. Some more personal things about me are that my favorite show is TVD, and I love my dog Ollie.
