Sandra Nyanchoka

University of Maryland, College Park, MD, USA

I was born and raised in Nairobi, a multi-cultural city in Kenya. I relocated to the US when I was 12-years old. Relocating at a tender age required me to learn a lot very quickly and to be humble as I sought to figure out my role in new situations. I am currently a junior at University of Maryland's Philip Merrill College of Journalism. After graduation, I would like to work as an international journalist. Aside from traveling, I enjoy being in a fast-paced environment that requires constant learning and adjustment. A quote I live by is "do the little things better than they have ever been done before." I take pride in mastering each step of whatever task is put before me, an attitude that I believe is especially important when it comes to editing, research and reporting.
