Sienna Ross is the Program and Communications Intern at Network 20/20. Raised in Singapore, Brazil, and Oregon, Sienna’s diverse background fostered her passion for international affairs and politics.

She most recently interned with the New Sanctuary Movement in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where she advocated for the legal and human rights of immigrants and asylum-seekers. Prior to that, she volunteered at a women’s crisis center for victims of domestic violence in Bukhara, Uzbekistan.
