Senior Correspondent, LMU
My name is Kennedi Hewitt and I am a sophomore at Loyola Marymount University studying English and journalism. I’m a member of Loyola Marymount’s Association of Black Journalists and the Black student union on campus. I’m a former assistant news editor for the Los Angeles Loyolan and a current managing editor for the paper. For Climate 360, I am a senior correspondent for the LMU team. My interests include the race and class intersection of climate change. As young people, we are always told that climate change will be our problem to take on and address, so I’m excited to be a part of Climate 360 and explore how climate change impacts different people around the country and hopefully uncover some ways to help.
