Natalia Clement

Intern, Summer 2020

Natalia Clement is a freelance journalist and former summer intern for WLRN, South Florida’s public radio news outlet. She enjoys producing multimedia content that covers community news and current topics of interest.

Her career as a journalist began back in elementary school, as a school news anchor. She noticed throughout her life that she was always involved in telling stories. This led her to formally pursue journalism in college. Natalia graduated in 2020 from Florida International University’s School of Communication and Journalism, where she also studied social media marketing. 

She gained experience in local and multimedia coverage through her work as a reporter and copy editor for the South Florida Media Network (SFMN), FIU’s student-produced news site. She was also the president of the Society of Professional Journalists chapter at FIU. Under her guidance, the organization focused on producing social media content that promoted a deeper understanding of journalism. Natalia also previously interned at Univision, where she created digital and social media pieces for the New York and Miami stations.

Radio journalism was not originally part of Natalia’s plans, but she quickly embraced the medium through her internship with WLRN. She views audio as a powerful storytelling tool that helps connect with others.

Natalia was born in Bogota, Colombia, but calls Miami her home. In her spare time you will find Natalia creating content on @makingitmiami — her lifestyle Instagram page geared towards creating a sense of community around what makes the 305 so unique.

She believes that the future of journalism lies in the hands of her generation, who will shift the industry’s focus to the digital and social media landscapes. Natalia’s ultimate goal is to have her own media company.
