Kamna Shastri is WEC’s Content Manager. She has a BA in Environmental Studies and Sociology from Whitman College and spent five years in the local journalism circuit, freelancing, interning, and working with traditional media and alternative community publications. Despite growing up in the Pacific Northwest, Kamna came to learn about Seattle and the region’s communities in deep ways through journalism. Her experience inspired a love for the intersection of place, culture, people and justice.  Social and environmental justice, community agency, and cultural identity are subject areas that she is always thinking about – even when off the clock! Outside of work, she enjoys reading, writing, spending time with friends, trying to sing and debating between buying coffee or making chai.
