The Washington Journalism and Media Conference


Junior Faculty Advisor

Manuela Bushamani is a rising third year student at the University of Virginia who hopes to study Classics and English.  She attended the Washington Journalism and Media Conference in the summer of 2019. As she was figuring out what she wanted to do with her passion for writing, she had an amazing learning experience that introduced her to the world of journalism. The following year, she applied to become a WJMC mentor, but due to COVID, the conference had to be canceled. Now, she is back with the hope of helping other kids find their passion or get exposure to a new experience.
