Noah Gilbert is a junior, and this is his second year on staff. Gilbert is going through a bit of an identity crisis right now because he spent all of last year being a thorn in our past Dictator-in-chief’s side. Now that she is gone, he can only work too morph into a mini version of her himself. Gilbert works at Starbucks and has a crippling caffeine addiction, which matches his green apron very well. He speed walks everywhere. Zooming from place to place (no not the video conference application) he looks constantly stressed and anxious. He can be heard saying in almost every class he takes “Wait what? Im confused.”
