“Being the news editor of The Hawk made me realize how much I love being on my feet.”
From Damascus, Maryland, Katryna Perera’s dream has been to live and work in New York City, and accordingly, she plans to pursue a master’s degree at the Columbia School of Journalism upon graduating from Saint Joseph’s. Once she decided to go to grad school, she felt that Columbia was right for her. “Knowing that I’m going there is the most thrilling thing,” she says. A communication studies major/political science minor, Katryna has also loved her work at SJU’s student newspaper, The Hawk. “I get an adrenaline rush from breaking news,” she adds.
