Our Team Mission

News Port sticks with New Mexico communities through engaging stories.”

Elizabeth Secor, Editor

I’m a junior at the University of New Mexico. I have worked in journalism since my junior year of high school. Outside of being the editor for News Port, I am a freelance reporter for the Daily Lobo, a member of the NYT Corps program, and a member of Chi Omega, a Greek life organization on campus.

Santiago Anaya, Intern Reporter

I am a freshman here at UNM, majoring in journalism and communications. Something interesting about me is that I am an avid fly fisherman. I’ve been fishing my whole life and absolutely love it.  My goal for the future is to make it through college successfully and pursue a career in journalism. I love to learn and grow, I hope to become successful in this field and leave my mark.

Colin Bulman, Intern Reporter

I am 25, I’m in the College of Population Health (minor in Mass Communication and Maternal Child Health), and I feel that being an intern will be incredibly helpful for me in the long run for Health Policy and dissemination of accurate information to the public in a timely, clear, and concise manner. I served in the Marines and Army and just recently retired from military service! I enjoy camping, and gardening, and I really enjoy cooking!

Allison Carpenter, Intern Reporter

I’m a senior at the University of New Mexico. I spent my summer reporting for the Roswell Daily Record, covering community events. I want to spend my career uplifting communities and bridging the education gap between working people and academia.

Connor Currier, Intern Reporter

I’m an upcoming Journalism student at the University of New Mexico. My long-term goal is to be a political investigative journalist. I own a personal media brand called “Service and Engagement USA” on YouTube and Instagram, where I dive into politics, culture, and trending news.

Soroi Jones, Intern Reporter

I’m an up-and-coming journalist studying at the University of New Mexico, set to graduate in 2025. My goal as a reporter for the News Port is to write stories about Albuquerque culture and shed light on the local events and communities that really make the city shine. I’m a big fan of Downtown Art Walks, spending time in local cafes, and getting to hear about the everyday routines of residents, business owners, fellow students, and ABQ representatives. I want to tell your stories in my work here

Izabella Kubiak, Intern Reporter

I am a junior at the University of New Mexico. I am majoring in Multi-Media Journalism and Communication with a minor in Management. My favorite hobbies are hiking in this beautiful state and watching my Green Bay Packers play on TV (and especially in person). I am most excited to start News Port to gain experience in Journalism so I can one day become a side-line reporter!
