Patrick Reilly graduated from the University of Chicago in June 2017 with a BA in History. As an undergrad, he served as Co-Editor-in-Chief of The Gate, UChicago's undergraduate political review, interviewed guests at the University's International House lecture center, and interned at the Pulitzer Center and The Christian Science Monitor. Each of these experiences inspired him to pursue a career in journalism.
Originally from Wilmington, Delaware, he's reported and conducted oral history research in Turkey, Chile, and now Mexico. In his spare time, he enjoys running and reading.
