Student Editorial Staff

Gil Ochoa Cisneros- Poetry Editor

My name is Gil Ochoa Cisneros. I am currently working towards some sort of English and/or linguistics degree. I graduated with my Associates Degree last spring at Aims. I enjoy writing poetry and short fiction. I wanted to work with The Aims Review because I enjoy reading and writing in almost all its forms. It’s especially enjoyable to see the kinds of art work students, staff, and faculty are passionate about creating. Aims is a great place to interact with new ideas and attitudes and The Aims Review is a great facilitator to that.

Chantel Long- Non-fiction Editor

Chantel Long has a background in both retail and restaurant management, but recently took on a new role that allowed her the flexibility to go to college; she is now in marketing for a dental company. While she is undecided in her major, she enjoys helping people, writing, and photography on the side. For fun, she goes camping during the warmer months, snowshoeing in winter, and enjoys riding motorcycles.

Noah Netzorg- Fiction Editor

This past semester has been my second semester at Aims and with The Aims Review. I started my time with The Aims Review last semester as a work-study, and I’m more than grateful I was given the opportunity. I have been a writer for as long as I can remember, making The Aims Review a perfect place for me. I have found a new passion for editing, design, and collaboration within the group. The staff is incredible to work with, which has only furthered my passion, so much that I have changed my major back to English at Aims. Aims has truly been a life-changing experience for me. The Community College I attended before Aims wasn’t nearly as invested in their students as Aims is. Being a member of The Aims Review and Catalyst have helped me to grow and expand my horizons in countless ways, and I look forward to the future I build at Aims. The Aims Review is a place where voices can be heard, beauty can be seen, and where passion can thrive. Being a member of this group is like any great work; it takes dedication, responsibility, give-and-take, and fervor. I was drawn to it from the moment I met the outstanding faculty behind it. My participation has been a gift as it has molded me into a better editor, team-player, and writer. It has helped define me as a writer, as someone with devotion, respect, and new expertise within the craft.

Samantha Thrall-Rebb- Visual Arts Editor

My name is Samantha, and this is only my second semester here at Aims, but I have decided to come here to pursue an associates degree in the arts. I have always really enjoyed photography, and I hope to learn and grow my skill set to apply my creativity to more than just a hobby.
