Meet the Alhambra Source interns

  • I am an incoming junior of Alhambra High School and a lover of food, animals, dance and stories. My beat is on scenes and vignettes in everyday life - digging up interesting nuggets out of our ordinary. - Allison Ko

  • I am an incoming senior at San Gabriel High School who loves volleyball, hiking, traveling, volunteering and music. I am a sports beat reporter. - Virginia Situ

  • My name is Peter Khant and I love to dance and challenge myself. My beat deals with breaking down society's norms and expectations.

  • Aurora Zeng is a rising senior at Mark Keppel High School who loves food and adventures, but unfortunately much of her time is instead spent on studying for Academic Decathlon or producing school newspapers. Thankfully, she gets to eat food and go on adventures to write stories about the interesting food and culture in the SGV for the Alhambra Source.

Alhambra , CA United States

The Alhambra Source is happy to work with seven summer interns from Alhambra High School, Mark Keppel High School and San Gabriel High School. These interns will work with Alhambra Source project director and USC professor Michael Parks to produce 4-5 high-quality stories on the people, businesses and culture of Alhambra. They’ll also be guided by journalism mentors on reporting, writing and editing. As young community members themselves, they bring a unique point-of-view to the Alhambra Source. Browse through their photos and bios and check back regularly for their work!

The summer internship program is being funded with a generous donation from Sara Miller McCune. Sara Miller McCune is the founder and executive chairman of SAGE Publishing, with subsidiary companies and sales offices in Los Angeles, Washington D.C., London, India, East Asia, Melbourne and Latin America. McCune remains actively involved in the company’s ongoing expansion and development.

McCune is also co-founder and president of the McCune Foundation, based in Santa Barbara and Ventura Counties, California. In 2007, she founded the Santa Barbara-based Miller-McCune Center for Research, Media and Public Policy which launched the award-winning print and online magazine Pacific Standard. In 2017, the magazine and the center’s mission were transferred to The Social Justice Foundation, a non-profit organization supported by SAGE Publishing. She is currently a member of the Board of Directors of the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences at Stanford University and a member of the board of directors and the visiting committee of the Social Science Research Council.

Sara is devoted to community building and regards the Alhambra Source as a vital institution for the revitalization of democracy from the ground up.
