Here’s a bit about Alisha Vandenberg, Class of 2013, about her time at the Daily Californian:
“I had the privilege of working at the Daily Cal throughout my time in Berkeley, including a sleepless Spring 2012 as Assistant University News Editor. The paper was the highlight of my college experience — working at a frenetic pace alongside committed and brilliant writers. Some favorite memories include covering the Occupy protests and march from Berkeley to Oakland, watching the drama of ASUC elections play out, and learning to ask more difficult questions.
The Daily Cal brought me out of my comfort zone, forced me to challenge my assumptions, and has produced some incredibly talented journalists along the way. Seeing former Daily Cal staffers win Pulitzer Prizes has been awe-inspiring.”
Alisha is currently killing it as a Writing Program Manager at Amazon, and we look forward to staying connected with this impressive Daily Cal alum in the future!
