Behind the Scenes

Staff

Carla Gualdron
Program Director, Teens in Print

Carla's story is a quintessential one of things coming full circle. As a sophomore at the former Media Communication Technology High School in West Roxbury, she joined the Teens in Print newspaper as a staff writer. It was there that she got her first taste of ink. That feeling of accomplishment in seeing her name in print sent her on a quest to become to journalist. A Boston native, Carla stayed local and attended Emerson College where she earned her degree in print journalism. Since then, Carla has quenched her thirst for bylines through the Boston Herald, El Mundo newspaper, and The Enterprise. In 2016, Carla returned to Teens in Print as the Program Director, hoping to inspire budding cub reporters.

During her time at BC, Alyssa majored in English and American studies, performed with the Boston College Dance Ensemble, and studied abroad in both Brussels, Belgium, and Venice, Italy. She also interned at a local pilot high school as part of BC’s PULSE program, which piqued her interest in high-school-level youth development.
