On this episode, we’re joined by Anushka De. Anushka is a freshman from Cupertino California studying computer science at Stanford University.

This past year, Anushka was named the Journalism Education Association Student Journalist of the Year and the National Scholastic Press Association’s Writer of the Year.

 Anushka talked about her initial fear of being a journalist and how she overcame it along with the great work she did on El Estoque, the student publication of Monta Vista High School. She discussed the high standards the journalism program at her school has and how students strive to fulfill them. And she shared her future goals.
