My name is Kate. I am currently pursuing my master's degree in journalism at the University of Texas while interning at publications and radio stations around town. I graduated from Brown University with a BA in English in 2015. Immediately after, I moved to New York City to begin a fellowship at Quartz through the Atlantic Media Fellowship program. After a year at Quartz, I decided to move back home to Texas to report on state politics and policy issues. I began interning at Austin's NPR station, KUT, in August 2016, and was offered a paid part-time reporter position in January 2017. I left KUT in July 2017 to spend some time in Mexico before starting graduate school in September.
