The NASFAA Communications Team is pleased to welcome Maria Carrasco as our new reporter. Maria is a 2019 graduate of American University where she studied journalism and political science. Maria comes to us from Inside Higher Ed, where she was a student life reporter since August 2021 covering a wide range of issues, such as mental health, Greek life, academic integrity, and more. Before that, she worked at Politico for over two years as a digital producer assisting with news coverage for different teams. Maria was born in Chile but grew up in the Midwest, and currently lives in Washington, D.C. Please join us in welcoming Maria!
