In today’s recovering job market, I know firsthand as a recent graduate how competitive the news industry has been. So it is great to hear how fellow AAJA Seattle student members are still able to land opportunities in journalism.
Solomon received a Bachelorâ€™s in Communication from the University of Washington in June where she spent time writing for the collegeâ€™s student newspaper, The Daily. Her interest in radio led Solomon to produce a monthly This American Life-inspired radio podcat focusing on campus-life.
Her work has ended up in The Seattle Times, National Native News, KUOW, KPLU and KPBCS.
Listen to episodes of Solomon’s program â€œThe Bark & The Bite” online.
Nolasco was the recipient of the 2011 Northwest Journalists of Color Scholarship. The NJC scholarship program awards students in Washington state demonstrating talent and commitment in journalism.
She has also interned for The Cambodia Daily in Phnom Penh, Cambodia in the summer of 2010.
Nolasco studies Journalism and Political Science at the University of Washington and is expected to graduate in 2012.
