YES! Magazine
Meet Sunnivie Brydum and Lauren Bohn, our new Editorial Directors!

Dear Terry,

Sunnivie and Lauren here, YES!'s new Editorial Directors.

As we dive into our new roles at YES!, we wanted to take a moment to say hi and to thank you for being a YES! reader. We might be new, but we already know that YES! is a special publication—and that's mostly because of informed and mission-driven readers like you.

It's been a whirlwind first month! In addition to making cross-country moves (Sunnivie from Denver, and Lauren from Chicago and Istanbul), we've been filling our brains to capacity with the rich history of YES!, getting to know the dynamic team that makes it all possible, and beginning to envision a future that takes us to even greater heights and deeper impact than ever before.

While we bring diverse skill sets and experiences to the office, we're already in agreement about some of the things we love most about YES! We're both inspired by YES!'s unique brand of solutions journalism, especially after spending most of our careers at more traditional journalistic outlets. It's rare for an outlet to dig deep enough to uncover the root causes of injustice—and illuminate solutions to today's most pressing problems. Whether YES! is literally digging in the dirt to find those solutions, or challenging us to do vacations differently, the kind of writing coming out of YES! brings us both hope—which can be hard to come by in 2019.

One of our biggest points of shared enthusiasm, though, is you, the incredible people who make this work possible. YES! wouldn't exist without you, and we want you to know how truly grateful we are for your trust and your support as we set off on this amazing journey.

We invite you to share with us your thoughts, hopes, and dreams for the future of YES! that we will build together.

We're so thrilled to be joining you and YES!

Sunnivie Brydum & Lauren Bohn
YES! Editorial Directors

P.S. Here's a bit more about us, beyond our bios...
