Daniela Ibarra, a digital and broadcast journalism student at the University of North Texas, used to dream of a national career, working at a big network, roving the country.
But after an internship covering news at the local level, Ibarra realized her passion was telling stories about her community.
Ibarra, a native San Antonian, has worked with local station KSAT 12, her university’s news station and interned at Univision. She serves as the interim president for the University of North Texas NAHJ student chapter, but has greater aspirations: to serve on the national board as a student representative.
Among Ibarra’s many adventures, she once witnessed a bomb threat at The Alamo.
