The MVP (Joel Lim)

What you know: He’s got a hat ever since college (the story of which may come to you on another day).

What you don’t know: He’s a huge movie junkie (especially when it comes to superhero flicks). His attention to detail is keen for social situations and for articles, making him a snappy social quipper and a meticulous section editor.
