Editorial Staff

Joshua Haney

– Editor In Chief

Josh is sophomore in the School of Foreign Service, majoring in International History. He grew up as an Air Force brat, and has lived in nine states, which makes saying where he’s from sound like a grocery list. He became interested in Eastern Europe and Russia after spontaneously deciding to study Russian as a foreign language, without any actual knowledge of the language beforehand. When not struggling through the interminable complexities of Russian grammar, he plays board games and reads up on bits of historical information of questionable value.






Sarah Bothner

– Copy Chief

Sarah is a junior in the MSB who, if she had the choice, would major in about eight different subjects. However, as this is not an option, she is double majoring in Finance and Operations & Information Management. She has a passion for 80s music, skiing, and black coffee. She hopes to one day be fluent in Spanish, an accomplished yogi, and to retire in Europe with her many future dogs and her enormous future yacht.





Christopher Stein

– Copy Chief

Chris is a sophomore in the School of Foreign Service studying Global Business. From Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, he is a self-proclaimed foodie. You can often see him in Washington D.C. trying to find pizza that doesn’t taste like cardboard.

He studies Mandarin Chinese and hopes to study abroad in Hangzhou, Taipei, or Shanghai.

Felipe Koerich

– Editor, Western Europe & Canada

Felipe Lobo Koerich is a freshman in the SFS planning to major in International Politics (or not). Originally born in Brazil, he has lived in Amsterdam, Houston, and New Orleans. Also a Portuguese, and thus EU citizen, Felipe’s interest in Western Europe, particularly the politics and future of the European Union, is equal parts intellectual curiosity and legal necessity. When not dutifully working for the Caravel, he writes short stories and reads Wikipedia articles about esoteric (read: irrelevant) topics.
