Uriel J. Garcia is a bilingual reporter, living in Phoenix. Uriel's journalism career started in high school, where he wrote for Maryvale's newspaper.
Living in Phoenix has been a great journalistic experience, because of the type of news that Arizona produces, particularly in the Arizona State Legislature. Some stories that Uriel has covered and is following are Arizona's immigration law known as SB 1070. Apart from immigration-related stories has covered the guns-on-campus bill, which would have allowed students and faculty to carry their weapons on university campuses.
As of now, Uriel is completing his education in journalism at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication and is expected to graduate May 2012.
