About Me


Hello! My name is Erin Castellano and I am 20 years old. I am an English and Communications double major at Saint Joseph’s University in Philadelphia PA. I am from a small town in South Jersey, right over the Walt Whitman Bridge. I am lucky that I get to call this city my second home and that it is right around the corner.

The best way that I express myself is through writing. It is my outlet for almost every aspect of my life, but more importantly I love to write for people. I have been working for The Hawk Newspaper for about a year now and I have discovered that journalistic writing is my favorite. I have found that it is so important to inform the general public about what they need to know not just through writing, but also video or photographic content to support the story.

This has lead me to become Social Media Editor for The Hawk, which has allowed me to combine my writing skills and execute them through more content. This past year I have put both my communications and writing skills together and I am excited to keep progressing and to share my work with the world!
