"My four years as a student in the Knight School allowed me to apply my curiosity and discover people’s unique stories in a way that could prepare me for a suitable career. I was not satisfied simply discovering someone’s story. I wanted to share that amazing story with others. Journalism was the way I was able to do that." - Mary Stringini '16
