I’m Courtney Columbus, a Master of Mass Communication student at Arizona State University in Phoenix, Arizona. I completed a specialization in Immigration & Border Reporting.
Peace Corps, a stint as a Teaching Assistant in Costa Rica, and a semester abroad during college taught me how to navigate foreign cultures, be comfortable working on my own and as part of a team, and use public transportation from motorcycle taxis to buses piled high with people and packages.
I graduated from Allegheny College in 2011 with a B.S. in Environmental Science and two minors – one in Spanish, and one in an innovative program called Values, Ethics, and Social Action (VESA). The VESA minor had a strong focus on community engagement. I also worked for three years as a Bonner Service Leader, organizing volunteer outreach efforts at a nearby nonprofit for two years and coordinating fellow Service Leaders’ efforts during my third year.
