Editor’s note: As part of a media transparency initiative, on Aug. 20, 2018, The Collegian spent the first day of publishing of the year telling our readers about us. You can read more about the people behind our publication in the Editor’s Blog.

Go was born and raised in Manila, The Philippines and immigrated to Colorado in 2012. He has since been living in the state and is just as proud to call himself a Coloradoan as he is to be Filipino. He mildly winces at the nickname “Gabe” and prefers to be called “Gab” instead. Ironically, he is only slightly fluent in Filipino compared to English. He blames this on an obsession with American movies and TV when he was younger (which is still true today). 

Being the night editor is the latest in Go’s posts working at The Collegian. Gabriel started working for The Collegian in spring 2016, starting as a volunteer news reporter and then moving on to cover the Associated Students of Colorado State University and Fort Collins’s city government. A writer at heart, Go is excited to apply his experiences as a reporter and wordsmith in helping manage the paper’s nightly production process.
