Rachel Ramirez in New York for the national College Media Association conference, which she attended with other select Beacon staffers last March.


The Asian American Journalists Association (AAJA) has chosen Beacon reporter/multimedia producer Rachel Ramirez as one of 15 college students nationwide to be part of its VOICES program.

VOICES participants will operate a student newsroom at the national AAJA convention in Philadelphia this July, where they will also be mentored by industry professionals.

This year’s VOICES cohort includes students from Stanford, NYU, UCLA, University of Michigan and the University of California, Berkeley, among others.

Luckily for The Beacon, Rachel is returning to staff in the fall, when she will be a senior. We look forward to her sharing all she learned from VOICES with the rest of our newsroom.

Congratulations, Rachel!
