We are pleased to announce that our mentor this year will be WLRN's very own Nadege Green!

Nadege has been a journalist in Miami for 10 years. She covers social justice issues for WLRN, the local NPR affiliate.

For her, journalism is not only about telling the stories of the people who are accessible, but also seeking out the voices we don't hear from, and telling those stories too. She has been recognized by the National Association of Black Journalists with three first place awards for investigative reporting, long form and short form radio reporting on policing in Miami-Dade’s black communities. Green’s work has also been honored by the Florida AP Broadcaster Awards, The Edward R. Murrow awards and others. She previously worked at the Miami Herald covering local city governments and the Haitian community.
