Natu TwehFall 2020 Intern
Natu Tweh is a first-year music business and entertainment industries grad student at the University of Miami. Born in Miami and raised in Kendall, he is a South Floridian native who has always lived at the intersection of multiple cultures.
With his Liberian culture in front of him and Latin culture around him, Natu grew to appreciate the stories that highlight our differences and similarities. From food to music, he enjoys crossing the bridges that link the cultures around him. The chance of a new experience pushes him in life and in storytelling.
At the University of Florida, he wrote for a music blog and hosted Connect The Dots, a show focused on music and activism on WGOT 100.1 FM. For a year he helped capture the flow of music coming through Gainesville and brought awareness to community-driven projects. Everyone has a story to tell, maybe two, and Natu believes chronicling those stories is beneficial to everyone and anyone.
After graduating from the University of Florida with a bachelor’s in journalism, his passion for learning and adventure took him to Salt Lake City. He interned with RadioWest, a talk show out of KUER 90.1. An episode he worked on booked and helped edit was awarded third place for a radio general feature from the Utah chapter of the SPJ. Now he has returned to Miami, hoping to learn everything he can at WLRN.
Aside from journalism, Natu has an ever-increasing list of hobbies and he is always excited to add something new to it. The top of this list includes music, playing rhythm games, martial arts, breakdancing, reading manga, trying new craft beer and more.
