Alesandra Tejeda became WUWM’s first digital intern in the summer of 2019.
Before her start date at WUWM, she spent part of June learning about the Sherpa diaspora in Queens, N.Y., for a personal investigative project. Alesandra loves to travel and has a passion for storytelling in all its forms, but particularly through photography. In recent years she has combined these interests around the world in Hawaii, Iceland, Nepal, and the Caribbean.
Alesandra attends college in Colorado, where she studies environmental studies and journalism. She calls many places home; among them Mexico City, where she was born and raised, and Milwaukee where she has lived for several years, on and off.
She hopes to pursue a life in journalism and photography.
