Elena Massing

Culture Editor

Elena is a third-year speech sciences and opera student, and has been The Ubyssey's culture editor since 2023. She has far too many opinions on books and music, and since her friends are getting tired of listening to her talk, you can read her hot takes here instead. She won the Canadian University Press's 2024 Arts and Culture Writing Award. There's a high possibility that at this very moment, she's sipping a hot cup of tea and being the most insufferable person alive, but she will always make time to chat about art and student life. Shoot her a message at e.massing@ubyssey.ca or culture@ubyssey.ca.
