I am a journalist born and raised in Caracas, Venezuela.
Sophomore year of high school I moved to Miami, Florida, and now I’ve traded the beach and the heat for the mountains and the chilly breeze of North Carolina.
At UNC-Chapel Hill, I’m the assistant editor for investigations for the Daily Tar Heel. I used to cover crime and general assignment last year. During the summer I went back to Florida, where I interned at the Orlando Sentinel‘s Breaking News Desk and last spring I was a general assignment intern for The Herald-Sun.
I was the editor-in-chief of The Reporter, the student newspaper at Miami Dade College during my sophomore year. I covered breaking news, general assignments and human interest features. I factchecked and copyedited the newspaper, while managing the News and Briefing sections — but the sweat and tears were worth it. The paper won first place in the Florida College System Publications Association in October.
