Traveler Bio

Agoo! Hello! My name is Justin Pilgreen, I am 21 years old, and I am originally from Lewisville, Texas. I am currently a senior at New York Univeristy studying journalism and international politics. Growing up, I had pretty similar interests to what I enjoy now. Some of my favorite past times include reading books, writing, and visiting museums. As a kid I enjoyed going to the Dallas Museum of Art, my local museum, but now I visit at least one museum in every city I go to!

For my senior thesis, I am combining my travel experiences and my personal research over the past three years to write about the role of journalism in different countries. Right now, I am back in New York City finishing my last year of school and writing my thesis. I am excited to share my expereinces in Ghana with you!
