Tabitha Bonilla: Professor

What is your job/profession and why are you passionate about it?

I am a research assistant professor at the Institute for Policy Research at Northwestern University. I love my job because it allows me to ask questions about how people understand politics and political communication. I love that I get to work with brilliant students and mostly, I love that I get paid to read and write.

What have you most enjoyed about being a part of the 818 community?

I love that at 818 I get to be part of a community---even if it is just saying 'hi' as I grab some tea. The space is light and open and a good place for me to steal away and write. 

And I heard about 818 from a Google search :) 

What is your life motto?

Not sure I have one, but lately I've been working on knowing my values and making sure that everything I do lines up with them.
