MATC Times

Kirsten Schmitt Profile
My name is Kirsten Schmitt. I joined the MATC Times because I was on my high school paper and really enjoyed the experience. I wanted to enhance my experience here at MATC and thought the paper would be a great way. I haven’t been disappointed. I am studying photography and have a great passion for capturing moments. The Times has allowed me that opportunity. I have blossomed under the tutelage of former editors and the advisor, Bob Hanson. Last year I was Photo Editor and this year I graduated to Editor-in-Chief. Although my background is mainly in photography, I have written for my high school paper and look forward to the challenge of improving my writing. Before I attended MATC, I was in the Peace Corps in Cambodia for 2 years. I taught English at a local high school and lived with a host family my entire service. It was a challenging, but rewarding experience and I miss all my friends that I made there. Besides speaking the language of Camobida, Khmer, fluently, I am also fluent in German. I have a Bachelor’s Degree from the UW Madison, where I was fortunate enough to study abroad in Germany. Traveling is important to me. I love to learn about new cultures, meet new people, learn new languages, and explore the world. My other interests include sports and baking. If you ever want to talk about either, I’d be happy to ramble your ear off. If you see me in the hallways, please stop and say hello. I always love to meet new people! Aww-koon! (Khmer) Danke! (German) Thank you! (English)
