About the Member:

Hi there! I’m Zach Merchant and I’m going to be a senior at Tufts in the fall. In school, I study political science and business. Outside of the classroom, I spend most of my time on the Mystic River rowing for the Tufts men’s rowing team. I’ve always been passionate about journalism, and working at ACMi has offered me a chance to take that passion and put it to work—I’m looking forward to what lies in store this summer!
