b. 1986, HK.



My name is Kyra Haas, and I'm a junior at the University of Missouri-Columbia studying convergence journalism and political science. I enjoy finding and telling good stories — it's exhilarating to talk to people about the things they care about.

These days, you can find me driving between Columbia and Jefferson City, covering state politics for the Columbia Missourian. I'm also working on a semester-long multimedia project for my digital editing and producing class. I'm super excited about it. The final cut will be posted here and hopefully published in early May, so stay tuned! 

I'm from Lawrence, Kansas, and am a recovering Jayhawk. I’m always down for a good cup of coffee and usually willing to settle for a mediocre one. In my spare time, I enjoy listening to podcasts and engaging in a variety of grandmotherly activities, such as trying to crochet, talking to my guinea pig and gardening on my windowsill.
