The Daily Tar Heel: Did you always know you wanted to major in journalism?
Kayla Tausche: I was an international studies major from the very beginning. It wasn’t until my sophomore year that I really dove headfirst into journalism. I had chosen to spend the spring semester abroad in Brussels, and the internship I got was at the Associated Press. All of a sudden, I found myself in the swirl of foreign correspondents covering European politics, and I fell in love — with the adrenaline, the access, the deadline, all of it.
