I Hartt Reporting

Agoura Hills native Rebecca Hartt graduated from UCSB this month, but not before spending six months reporting and writing about lifestyle, food, exercise, and other topics as an intern for The Indy. The linguistics major and professional writing minor, who grew up a dancer but now teaches hot yoga, got to write about everything from baby sleep aids and fitness studios to the Humane Society and bugs. "My favorite part about the internship is doing my own investigating for stories," she said. "It's interesting to be able to interview people from all walks of life."
