WSJ names winter 2021 interns
Megan Douglass, senior editor for newsroom talent at The Wall Street Journal, announced the winter interns:
Our winter interns started this week. Like our summer and fall classes, they will all be working remotely with teams around the newsroom for the next 10 weeks. Read their bios below.
Brooke, a Dow Jones News Fund business reporting intern, joins the WSJ Pro team covering everything from private equity to cybersecurity. She’s a South Florida (954!) girl and recent graduate in investigative journalism at the Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism at CUNY. An Ida B. Wells fellow, Brooke loves taking deep dives to cover communities of color and follow the money. Previously, she has interned with the Miami Herald, the South Florida Times and Inc. Magazine. Brooke has a major sweet tooth and takes all food recommendations (as long as you don’t tell her dentist).
Hannah will be interning with the economics team in Washington, D.C. She is a 2020 graduate of University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where she covered university news for the Daily Tar Heel student newspaper, studied business journalism and worked part-time at a local restaurant that (allegedly) makes the best chili cheeseburger in the country. Hannah has previously interned for the Triangle Business Journal and the Charlotte Observer. When not working on a story, she can be found reading, biking, drinking coffee or performing some precarious combination of all three activities.
Marco is an intern on the markets team. He is a recent graduate of University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where he studied business journalism and was co-editor-in-chief of the university newspaper, The Daily Tar Heel. He was awarded the Ernest H. Abernethy Journal Award by the UNC chancellor for the most distinctive publication work during 2019. Marco last interned on the business news team at the Charlotte Observer, covering new businesses drawn to the growing city. Marco is a native Spanish speaker and enjoys writing about the triumphs and struggles of the Latino community in the U.S. He is an avid soccer fan, especially of F.C. Barcelona. His favorite book is Oracle Night by Paul Auster.
Sam will be interning with WSJ’s photo desk. She is a Wisconsin native and graduated from the Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism, where she focused on photography and interactive design. Previously, Sam worked as a photojournalist for San Francisco’s NPR station, KQED, covering daily and feature assignments. She also worked as a photo assistant and producer for photo and documentary projects both domestically and internationally. When not looking at photography, Sam can be found adapting old family recipes or climbing mountains with her best friends.
