As a student journalist, Kindal Dolph is driven by a desire to connect with others through culture and art. Her interest in publishing first began when she stole a magazine from her sister’s bedroom at the age of 10, a catalytic moment that would eventually cause her to pursue working in the media industry because of its ability to educate and inspire a community. As an Account Executive at Vortex, she aims to combine this passion with her Pacific Northwest roots. When she isn’t writing, Kindal enjoys practicing yoga and finding new places to explore.
