Abigail Geiger's Profile

Abigail Geiger is a junior at MU studying journalism, political science and history.

In the spring of 2012, she was on the education beat at the Missourian, and for Spring 2013, she is an advanced reporter on the enterprise beat. She has interned for and worked at newspapers, websites and a cable television network. She first became interested in journalism (photojournalism, to be exact) before high school after seeing photojournalist Robert Capa's Spanish Civil War photo, "The Falling Soldier," in a New York exhibit.

She hails from Orlando, Fla. by way of Silver Spring, Md. Outside of journalism, she's starting her yearlong goal of reading 20 books, finding a functional typewriter and speaking a foreign language again.

She is also waiting to find the genealogist who can answer the oft-asked question of whether or not she is in fact related to Hans Geiger, inventor of the Geiger counter.
