What's up, my name is Mario Ortiz Jr, and this is my first year writing at The Orion. I'm a fifth-year student here at Chico State. I major in Journalism and minor in music. I love calling my mom, making music, ingesting vast amounts of caffeine, watching basketball, and chilling if I'm not writing. I can't wait to write for The Orion and learn skills that can evolve me into a better writer.
