Katie Donia is a first-semester student at the Graduate Center pursuing a Master’s degree in Data Analysis and Visualization. Born and raised in Dallas, Texas, she earned a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science from the University of Texas at Dallas. Eager to pursue a career that reflects her strong sense of ethics and belief in the importance of the arts, Katie realized she had to leave Dallas (and quickly) and felt that New York City was the place for her! Katie spends her free time seeing every new movie she can and catching up on the classics in the meantime. One of her favorite genres of film is the classic Hollywood film musical, and she wants to learn to tap dance while in New York. Katie is very impressed with the LP2 program and feels the position of Program Assistant is a great way to contribute to the Graduate Center’s goal of education for the public good.
