Luul Boru, Columnist

My name is Luul Boru. I graduated May 2022 from the University of Minnesota with a bachelors of arts in English. I love to write short stories and poetry. Journalism became my passion along the way, and I wanted to share my writings with a greater audience. That is why I wanted to become a Minnesota Daily columnist and dabble in multiple genres of writing while I share my opinions and concerns with our readers.
