Katcher is a multimedia journalist who enjoys reporting on education, technology, art and culture. A native Detroiter, she received a BA in Journalism Honors from Wayne State University, and her love of dynamic storytelling is why she studies multimedia at UC Berkeley’s Graduate School of Journalism. Katcher is one of only two winners of this year’s AP-Google Journalism and Technology Scholarship Program. She plans to develop a web and mobile app that will enable children to engage with journalism. Katcher attributes her love of journalism to exposure at an early age and her app aims to incite the same passion for news and information in future generations.
