Shine was part of the inaugural class of the Active Voice fellowship in 2016-17 and created a project in San Diego connecting female high school students to local professional journalists. Her fellowship project’s mission was to provide journalism resources and education to students in low-income neighborhoods. She is a junior at the University of California, San Diego and works as the managing editor of The Triton, an online-news source she helped build in her first two years in college. Her love of journalism comes from an obsession for current events and political cartoons. She has contributed to inewsource, an investigative reporting agency in San Diego and previously interned with the investigative unit of CBS News in Los Angeles. She hopes to pursue law school after graduating college and learn about media, intellectual property, and immigration law.
