Noah Sneider Education

Sneider graduated from Palo Alto High School in 2009. He said being in Palo Alto High School’s journalism program was an important step toward becoming the journalist he is today.

“Having the chance to get that experience here … when the stakes are slightly lower than the front page of The New York Times is really, really valuable,” he said. “I think you guys [Paly students] are super lucky to have that chance.”

He also said that his interest in journalism began in fourth grade.

“I think my first article was about the popularity of tetherball at Addison [Elementary School],” he said.

After working as a member of Paly’s sports magazine, Viking, Sneider temporarily lost interest in journalism, and then attended Pomona College, in Claremont, California. Having two parents who had been journalists, Sneider said he wasn’t keen to continue that family tradition.

Despite his hesitation to study journalism in college, Sneider realized before graduating in 2013 that a career in journalism could also fulfill his passion for travel.

Noah is the son of two foreign correspondents. His mom, Elisabeth Rubinfien, is a former journalist, Paly Journalism aide, and long-time high school journalism adviser at Eastside College Preparatory School.

“(As) I said before, the whole Russian story starts with my family, and the fact that I spent some time there when I was a kid. I spent the first four years of my life there in Moscow, and I grew up speaking both languages. (I) had Russian nannies that took care of me while my parents were working; they were these old Russian babushka grandmas that spoke to me in Russian and sang me Russian lullabies. We moved back to the U.S. and went back to California, and I forgot about all of it and I stopped speaking Russian,” Noah said.
