Stephanie Serrano is a senior at the University of Nevada, Reno and a Latina born and raised in Reno, Nevada. She joins KUNR as our bilingual news intern for the spring of 2017. It's a special position supported by the Pack Internship Grant Program, KUNR, and Noticiero Movil, a bilingual multimedia news source that's part of the Reynolds School of Journalism.

Stephanie lives by this quote: “Nothing great ever came from comfort zones.” She believes being Latina has helped her become an independent, self-motivated, and confident woman. Her culture, family and self-driven goals inspire her to be a better person each day.

As a bilingual journalist, she feels it is her duty to help people reach out of their bubble and voice their story through her. She has worked with Noticero Movil as a bilingual reporter and has won a National Hearst award for her work in journalism. She loves being able to speak two different languages because she can help two communities at the same time.

When she isn’t saving the world with her journalism career, she likes to invest her time in painting and drawing, spending time with her family, and playing with her two dogs.
