Sandy Mui, Communications Associate

Sandy supports the Communications team with creating content across digital properties, social media and e-newsletters.

Sandy’s background is in journalism, having covered a mix of topics in hard news, features, entertainment, opinions and sports. Her interest in digital media expanded as she branched out in her writing and worked on social media, digital campaigns, websites, layout, podcasting and e-newsletters. Before joining WITNESS, Sandy was a digital intern at Everytown for Gun Safety — where she became inspired by the work of nonprofits and how digital advocacy can help spur social change. Her current interests lie in supporting human rights and a free press.

Sandy has a B.S. in Journalism and Media Studies from the Macaulay Honors College at Brooklyn College. In June 2019, Sandy received the Vanguard Prize in Journalism — a prestigious award given to a Brooklyn College journalism student for their commitment to protecting and advancing First Amendment rights. She is currently pursuing her M.A. in Liberal Studies — with a track in Digital Humanities — at the CUNY Graduate Center.
