A former YC writer, Mario Sanchez is our first ever Journalism Fellow. As our Fellow, Mario will shadow and learn from the different departments within the organization. A Posse Scholar and Lafayette College student, Mario hopes to bring his past experiences as a former YC writer, editor / reporter at The Lafayette, into the upcoming developments of YC. Mario’s personal mission is to elevate youth voices and inspire writers to authentically express themselves artistically, as well as push their limits as empowering youth voices. Fun fact: Although Mario wishes he was a morning person, he currently functions best after midnight.
