My name is Katherine Rogers. I'm a senior communications major on the journalism track at the University of Utah graduating in December of 2019. I'm currently an intern at CATALYST Magazine. I've lived in Utah my whole life and love it dearly, but I am excited to explore the world and see new places.
I plan on pursuing a career in journalism. I've been interested in journalism from a young age. This likely came from growing up listening to NPR and wanting to read anything I can get my hands on. I love stories, especially ones about real people. I want to help tell those stories.
I believe it's important for people to be informed about the world around them. After all, an informed, educated population is a productive one. I am excited to get a chance to make sure that people know important information.
Along with loving stories, I also enjoy the process of writing them. I have discovered how much I like doing research for stories. I find interviewing to be an interesting process. It gives you the chance to talk to real people about the real things that affect their lives. The enjoyment that I get from writing helps keep me productive and organized. I always strive to be honest and ethical in my writing.
