Nadia GordonWLRN 2021 Summer Intern
Nadia Gordon is a rising senior at Florida Atlantic University majoring in Multimedia Journalism.
Her love for journalism began as a child watching the news with her parents, viewing journalists such as Soledad O’Brien and Tamron Hall on various networks. Seeing such influential women in the news sparked Nadia’s passion for reporting and uncovering unsung stories.
Her start as a journalist began as an anchor on FAU’s Owl TV and she has since interned with the Boca Raton Tribune as a newsroom writer and social media content creator.
Nadia is a member of both Lambda Pi Eta, the official Communication Studies honor society of the National Communication Association, and the National Association of Black Journalists. She is also a recipient of The Provost Certificate of Recognition for Publishing.
During her time at FAU she has fallen in love with the mixed culture of South Florida and plans to pursue a career in broadcast journalism post graduation.
In her spare time Nadia enjoys listening to true crime podcasts, watching documentaries (about virtually anything), and discovering new things to do in South Florida.
As a summer intern at WLRN, she hopes to strengthen her reporting skills as well explore the ins and outs of radio journalism.
