The Los Angeles Magazine Inter(n)view: Meet Rachel Aragon
Skeptics, schmepticks. Our editorial interns indicate the future of magazine journalism will be bright. From assisting research editor Eric Mercado by checking facts to writing and reporting stories, the small group of student journalists that help us put our print and Web content together is an impressive bunch. For example, meet Rachel, a third-year student at Dartmouth College.
