Kyle Austin is a rising junior at Wake Forest University who grew up in Mill Valley, California. Growing up, he enjoyed spending time with his two older brothers and parents, playing tennis and basketball, and reading any book he could get his hands on. He graduated from high school in 2020 at the beginning of COVID, which spurred the decision to take a gap year before attending college. During his gap year, he took classes, camped, spent time outdoors, and worked at a daycare.
During his sophomore year at Wake Forest, he took an Introduction to Journalism course and loved the challenge of finding interesting topics and diving more deeply into those topics. He is interested in a wide range of subjects, from sports to AI to the stock market. Most importantly, he's excited to write articles and learn more about the field of journalism.
