Hello? Is it me you’re looking for?
Yes, in fact. You are exactly what I am looking for. Because every time I look at you, I am filled with joy and laughter. I’m so glad this is hanging up in Hamilton Hall. I’m just so glad this exists.
My name is Jessie Opoien.
I'm a reporter for the Capital Times and 77 Square in Madison, Wis. I'm an Iowa State University alum, and I was the 2010-2011 editor in chief of the Iowa State Daily. Before moving to Madison, was a reporter at the Oshkosh Northwestern. I've also interned at the Des Moines Register, CNN, Isthmus and the Center for Media and Democracy. I'm passionate about writing, music and politics, and I play the piano and the banjo.
I'm also an Iowan-Wisconsinite hybrid.
