Andrea Terés-Martínez entered the world of journalism during her first year at Boise State University, joining the staff of the university’s independent student newspaper The Arbiter and igniting her passion for journalism and storytelling. In 2021, the paper hired her as its news editor, and the staff selected her to serve as its editor-in-chief the next year. During her years of reporting, she received first-place prizes for a serious feature story and student headlines and third place in the student editorial category at the 2022 Idaho Press Club awards.

Reporting as an intern for the Idaho Statesman in 2022, she covered child hunger, statewide labor shortages, Boise’s housing crisis, and Latino affairs. After the completion of her internship, she was a featured speaker at the 2023 Boise State Idaho Listens event, where she made a case for journalism through the lens of her Catholic faith.

After graduation, Andrea plans to move to New York City, where she has accepted an internship with The Wall Street Journal as a publishing desk copy editor.

Andrea is from Meridian, Idaho.
