Tatum Bergen

features writer

Tatum Bergen is a soon-to-be graduate with a Bachelor's degree in International Studies and a minor in Media and Communication and is the founder of Tatum Bergen Photography. Her love for writing began young, writing stories in books she made from scrap paper and string in her first-grade classroom. Growing up, Tatum travelled extensively with her mother’s job, which exposed her to different countries and cultures and shaped her worldview at a young age. Tatum believes journalism can open the minds and hearts of readers to empathize with the rest of the world; this seed of compassion is what will transform our communities. When she needs inspiration, you’ll find her adventuring outside, hiking a mountain, or kayaking on a lake, all while soaking in the beauty of creation, with her camera in hand and her old yellow lab, Rigs, by her side.
