Joe Shem, a senior in his fourth year of journalism, comes back to journalism every year because of the feeling he gets from being part of a workplace ensemble. He has also been part of UPA’s WINK program since eighth grade, as he values the feeling of community. In his spare time, Shem enjoys playing video games such as Skyrim and building plastic models. Shem values loyalty and honesty in friendships because he likes to know that he is not alone and that there is someone he can talk to and feel safe with. A surprising fact about Shem is that he can get very loud when he gets comfortable with people, after seeming quiet at first. He believes lying is the worst avenue to take in terms of communication because when the lie is discovered, it is completely uncomfortable for all of the parties involved. His favorite quote is “I think therefore I am,” which he interprets as meaning what he sees is his truth, and not much else can affect how he sees the world.
