As a 24-year old college graduate with a BA in History, and with political interests mainly in international relations in Europe and the Middle East, I hope to use my strengths in modern world history to contribute to news stories covering my main areas of interest. Though the focus of the San Francisco News is local news, there is a newfound dedication to give a voice to community members in need, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. The political year known as 2020 has also given the people much to be anxious about, and I hope to give them a voice.
