Hi, I'm Sophia Tulp, a multimedia journalist hailing from the heart of the Midwest: Kansas City, Kansas.
In two weeks, I'll graduate from Ithaca College, where I study journalism with minors in Spanish and politics. I'm at Ithaca College through the Park Scholar Program, a full scholarship that combines my passions for leadership, community service and communications.
I spent the summer as an intern for my NPR member-station in Kansas City (KCUR 89.3,) where I covered everything from a Trump rally to a murder trial. The summer before that, I interned in the Los Angeles bureau of USA TODAY. There, I covered glitzy red carpet events, business news and everything in between.
Last spring you could find me in Belgrade, Serbia; Pristina, Kosovo; and all throughout Bosnia. I studied peace & conflict and journalism during a semester abroad in the Balkans.
I love to read (currently on Tell Me How it Ends: An Essay in Forty Questions by Valeria Luiselli,) cook (thank you HelloFresh 🙌,) volunteer (I've taught media literacy to incarcerated young men at the MacCormick Secure Center for four years) and talk about being from the Midwest (Ope! ask me about our BBQ.) Questions about me or my work? Let's Talk!
