Skye Michele Saunders

Social Media Intern (Advanced)

My name is Skye Michele Saunders. I’m currently a junior at SUNY Purchase College and majoring in journalism. My passion for journalism began when I was interviewed at Albert Einstein Hospital in the Bronx, NY by News 12. The interview was based on my friend and I talking about our premature births and how we still remain connected.  I was born at 1lb & 8oz at 24 weeks, and I’m legally blind in my right eye. Despite my challenges at birth, that still didn’t stop my determination nor strength to become the person that I am today. I continue to thank my family, friends, and relatives for watching me grow over the years into this blossoming young adult and continue to push me for excellence and greatness!
