Polly Irungu

When multimedia journalist and digital editor Polly Irungu ’17 first started snapping photos with the camera she bought in high school, she never expected to one day find herself working for New York Public Radio.

Since childhood, her path has been full of twists and turns that led her from Nairobi to Kansas to Eugene and ultimately to New York City, where she now edits digital content for the radio show “The Takeaway” with Tanzina Vega and Amy Walter.
