Kate Hayashi is your 2019-20 Assistant Opinion Editor. She draws all her writing inspiration from Michael Barbaro's "hmms" in “The Daily.” Outside of the newsroom, you can usually find her running or hiking on various trails in Irvine with her cross country team or waiting in line to get rush tickets for the latest musical at Segerstrom Hall. She also loves going on nighttime walks with her mom and taking four-hour naps that mess up her sleep schedule.
