Chelsea Moreno

Ever since she was a little girl, Chelsea Moreno knew she wanted to be a storyteller.

Born in El Paso, Texas, she grew up speaking and writing in Spanish and English, skills she hopes will advance her career.

A senior at the University of Texas at Austin, Moreno is majoring in journalism with a minor in Latino media studies. Moreno has served as the news director at Texas Student Television, where her specialties are writing, editing, and making graphics.

When she’s not chasing stories and producing shows, she’s at church. God and family are very important for her, and she tries to visit her hometown as often as possible.

She hopes that participating in the Student Projects will give her a chance to learn from those who have been in the business for years.

In the future, she sees herself as TV producer.
