Three days after graduating from Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism in June, I packed up my 2003 Hyundai Accent and moved to Washington, D.C. I’m currently interning at Washingtonian magazine, where I write, fact check, learn how to pronounce “Loudon” county, and forcibly use serial commas.
At Northwestern, I minored in religious studies, and have reported on how religion affects societal thought and action. I’ve also written about culture and style for TIME, where I worked from January to March, and on various feminist issues for Ms. magazine, among other news outlets.
I spent four months studying in England at King’s College London in 2011, where I focused my studies on theology. Living in London gave me a global perspective on current affairs that has helped me see how my reporting fits into the international journalism landscape. I’ve produced stories on Tibetan activists, Iraqi immigrants and Mexican families living in squalor, and plan to continue covering international issues.
