As a journalist, Katie Doke Sawatzky (CMU '10) does a lot of listening. For her, it's an act of service.
"At the end of the day, you're just talking to people and listening, which I think is why I wanted to pursue journalism in the first place," she says. "I was interested in pursuing this line of work because you come at it from a stance of compassion."
