Welcome! My name is Zari Tarazona. I’m the editor of Kensington Voice, a community newspaper serving the heart of Kensington in Philadelphia. I graduated from Temple University with a bachelor’s degree in journalism in May 2019. I started working at Kensington Voice in November 2019 and took over our editorial operations in July 2020. At first, I was nervous, but this job has helped me grow so much.



I grew up in a small town in southeastern Pennsylvania. I have Peruvian and Italian roots. This past year, I improved my Spanish-speaking skills through online tutoring and prioritized my mental health through therapy. During my free time, I’m usually watching my favorite TV shows, going on long walks, or spending time with my family and friends.
