Shelby Marra

My name is Shelby and I'm a senior at the University of Arizona. I'm a journalism student and I love creating content whether through writing, photography, videography or news! I was inspired by Humans of New York and created Humans of Tucson in hopes of showcasing and cataloging, through photographs and short stories, the vibrant faces of the desert dwellers in Tucson, Arizona. I will be graduating in May and hope to pursue a career as a television news reporter! Enjoy!
