Shae Pastrana, Reporter

Shae Pastrana is a junior majoring in journalism and minoring in anthropology. Her writing is influenced by her background in science and traveling. Her past research experience includes microbiology, regenerative agriculture, and monitoring environmental impact. A former volunteer for nonprofits, she now commits to donations and fundraisers. Aside from her new contributions to The Orion, she also writes poetry, lyrics, and journal reflections. 

With a loving husband and sassy dog for roommates, she finds time for gardening, cooking, art, the outdoors, and music. Originally from Louisiana, she’s lived in so many regions that she lost her southern accent. An aspiring magazine writer, she plans to complete graduate school and expand her travels. Her interests are science, wildlife, culture, socioeconomics, philosophy, and human rights.
