Samantha Mendoza


About Me: 

A graduate student in the Magazine, Newspaper, and Online Journalism program, Samantha is the Lead News Producer for the Newshouse. Born and raised deep in the heart of Texas, she completed her BA in English Writing and Rhetoric and English Literature at St. Edward's University in Austin. She then moved to Chennai, India to teach middle-school English under a Fulbright grant. 

Her interest in international human rights and post-conflict reconciliation has taken her across the globe, and she hopes that her career will allow her to contribute to social justice and governmental accountability.
