My name is Kathryn Boyd-Batstone and I am from Long Beach, CA. I am a sophomore studying photojournalism at the UO because I love to meet people and share their stories and experiences with others. I started photographing on family camping trips when I was younger, and then got serious about my photography in high school. I am now focusing on photojournalism and multimedia in college because I think that photographs, video, and audio create a richer story with more levels to it. I am currently a photographer for Flux Magazine and started the publication Envision, an environmental journalism publication at the UO. I am also minoring in Spanish and will be studying in Sevilla, Spain this up coming fall term. I hope to combine my love for travel, the outdoors, and visual story telling in my career. After I graduate I want to join the Peace Corps for two years and then return to go to grad school for journalism. My dream job would be to work for National Geographic traveling and experiencing the world.
