About Delia Torres-Enciso

I’m on my second year at PCC with plans to transfer to PSU next year and earn a bachelors of science degree. My academic focus is in Philosophy and Films Studies. This last summer I gained experience as a journalist intern for The Pamplin Media Group writing for The Beaverton Valley Times and The Washington County Times. My future career path is still uncertain. However, I have a strong desire to continue as a journalist and will go forth with an open mind to explore any form of media. I love to write and believe the world is in need of more factual-unbiased news reporting. I like to cover Arts & Culture and intend to delve into investigative journalism when the opportunity presents itself. During my free time I like to absorb large amounts of media through TV shows, movies, Youtube videos and memes.
