Exposure to the arts can open doors to a creative life, but not everyone has the same opportunities to be creative — even though California state law requires access to arts education.

I'm a proud alum of KPCC's internship program and Next Generation Radio. Before covering arts and education, I reported and produced for NPR, WLRN in Miami, WNYC and PRI's The Takeaway.
