Class of 2023
My degree in Environmental Studies and Spanish at the University of Oregon helped shape my intention as a journalist: to tell the stories of underrepresented individuals, engage communities often at political odds, and in doing so, fight for social and environmental justice. I am particularly interested in the relationship between politics and environmental justice, Indigenous rights, climate change and ecology. I have experience in urban and rural farming, environmental reporting and political narrative.
I am coming to Berkeley to learn how to tell stories through a variety of different mediums, though narrative writing is a personal favorite. I have experience in music writing and radio broadcasting, as well, and enjoy anything music related. I seek to combine my interests in culture and the environment to tell a wide range of intimate and representationally diverse stories about the human experience.
