Kiara Santos Takes the Helm of The Triangle, Drexel’s Independent Student Newspaper
When Kiara Santos joined The Triangle as a news writer during her first year at Drexel University, she was determined to work her way up to a leadership position at the independent student newspaper before she graduated. Born and raised in Philadelphia, when it came time to choose a college, Santos knew a traditional four-year route wasn’t for her. Like many children of immigrants, Santos was often encouraged to pursue a prestigious career like law or medicine. But, Santos said, "I always knew I wanted to do journalism. I've always told myself, even as a kid, I want to win a Pulitzer Prize one day."
