Aliyya Swaby | Texas Tribune

Aliyya Swaby started as the  Texas Tribune's public education reporter in October 2016. She came to the  Tribune from the hyperlocal nonprofit  New Haven Independent, where she covered education, zoning and transit for two years. After graduating from Yale University in 2013, she spent a year freelance reporting in Panama on social issues affecting black Panamanian communities. A native New Yorker, Aliyya misses public transportation but is thrilled by the lack of snow.
