Asha Anchan

“News21 gave me the rare opportunity to dive into a single topic with talented students and mentors to find stories that have yet to be told. It's the kind of journalism that I love because it's both difficult and motivating, and the end result is a meaningful project that demands the attention of readers.”

Asha Anchan is a Peter Kiewit Foundation News 21 Fellow and a recent graduate of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln with a bachelor’s degree in journalism and concentrations in history, English and economics. She has interned as a news and features reporter at the Norfolk (Neb.) Daily News, the Omaha World-Herald and the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.
