Mikayla is a Digital Coordinator at Discovery Communications and senior journalism major at the University of Maryland. She has also lived in both London and New York City where she worked for different lifestyle journalism companies.

Pressuncuffed.org seeks to encourage and promote rigorous student reporting, scholarly research and debate on the role of, and obstacles to, independent journalism in the United States and abroad. Our website features reporting by University of Maryland students about press freedom in the United States and abroad. It also offers resources to instructors elsewhere who may want to teach classes or hold workshops on this theme. In the near future, this site will become a place for student work from around the country and abroad.
