Melanie Nesteruk
A senior at Kent State University studying both computer science and visual journalism. Yep, I know that's a strange combination, but it's what I want to do. And what is that exactly, I don't quite know yet.

But I know I love to tell stories and I love to create and I want to make something incredible. And somewhere in that, I know there is a place for a passionate tech-saavy journalist or a storytelling software developer.

My focus is on stories with environmental impact. I care deeply about the health of our planet and how that impacts people living around the world. I love exploring new and wild places, and one of my favorite things to do in my spare time is volunteer in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. I'm a lifelong learner and enjoy a good challenge. My goal is to combine journalism and computer science to effectively tell stories that matter. And even though that's not going to be easy, I know that I'm up for the challenge.
