Jacob Meschke studies journalism, Spanish and political science at Northwestern University, just outside of Chicago. He graduated from Okemos High School in 2014—a diehard fan of the Spartans but an arch nemesis of the Trojans.

Previously, Jacob covered Capitol Hill for the Medill News Service and was editor of the politics and culture magazine North by Northwestern. Though a strong Big Ten sports fan, Jacob’s real passion lies in soccer, and covering its growth across Michigan and the United States.
