Kierran Petersen is the former social media journalist at PRI's The World. In 2015, she graduated from The George Washington University with a degree in Journalism & Mass Communication.
Before making her way to Boston, she worked in Washington DC as a freelance writer and producer for BBC Washington. She has also spent time on the other side of the phone, during a stint at The Department of Health and Human Services working in the public affairs department. However, the best decision she says she has ever made was to live in Kigali, Rwanda for four months researching the role of filmmaking in the country's post-genocide restoration.
When she's not feverishly checking Twitter or fishing for likes on Facebook, she's probably playing soccer, listening to a podcast — or both.
