2012 W&M REPORTING FELLOW
Sonali Kudva is an Indian journalist who is currently a graduate student of journalism at Kent State University, USA. Sonali has travelled widely, including to unusual places like Algeria and Tunisia and hopes someday that she will get the opportunity to travel to more interesting places, perhaps as a travel journalist. Previously she has worked as a copy editor and columnist for a daily newspaper in India and freelanced for magazines and newspapers. Sonali calls India her home, even though she spends more time away from home than in it. She likes to collect Masters degrees and is in the process of accumulating her third one. In her spare time, she likes to vegetate with an interesting novel, talk to her family or argue with her friends on politics, international affairs and any other topic that may come up.
