Teo Armus explores the world one article at a time.
Armus, a 21-year-old Columbia University student, began immersing himself in journalism at his New York high school. There, he found that he prefers reporting to creative writing.
“What I really love about journalism is the fact that with every story, every assignment, you really have the opportunity to experience an entirely new group of people,” he said. “Really just immerse yourself in a new world.”
Through journalism, Armus hopes to open the worlds and experiences of others. He hopes to bring his own perspective — that of a New Yorker, the son of Argentine immigrants, and a Latino — to issues related to underrepresented communities.
