Stephanie Bunao '18 speaks at Queens University of Charlotte graduation.

"The Knight School not only added many tools to my arsenal of skills, but it helped me realize my passion and love for journalism. I will never forget how professors pushed me and believed in me...even during the times I didn't believe in myself. They taught me to dig deeper, question everything, and always keep an open mind." -Stephanie Bunao '18
