All Careers Considered: Andrea Vega Yudigo Embraces Election Season as a Reporter & Young Professional

All Careers Considered can be found wherever you get your podcasts, like Spotify and Apple Podcasts.

Andrea graduated with her degree in International Studies & Journalism in 2019 and is currently a DC-based reporter for NHK, Japan’s national broadcaster. As she mentions in this episode, sometimes that first job and post-graduation experience is exactly what you’d expected and sometimes it’s not, especially when a global pandemic occurs. In Andrea’s case, it’s a little bit of both AND has provided some great opportunities to challenge herself, grow, and learn.  In this episode, she tells Molly what it was like doing a gap year in China after graduating from high school before starting at IU, why she decided to change her major, what it’s been like traveling all over the country to cover the Biden campaign and more.
