Politics up close and personal—and the stories to show it.

Kaitlyn Acciardo was a firsthand witness to the 2020 U.S. presidential campaign. A political science major and Fitzwater Scholar, she traveled with a student news team covering the candidates.  
The result? Two stories in the Boston Herald and countless experiences she’ll remember for life. 
“I’ve always had a passion for politics and chasing stories. When I heard I’d have the opportunity to go to Iowa and be in New Hampshire during the primary, I knew it was for me.”
