A Bit About Amanda Rosa
I am a third-year journalism student at the University of Florida, and I was born and raised in Miami Beach.
My earliest memory of journalism was my elementary school morning routine. Every day, I sat in the living room watching the channel 6 news repeating everything the anchors said to my mother. I'm sure she heard what the anchors were saying, but she liked to humor me.
One high school newspaper later, I began my college career at the University of Florida in 2016. As a sophomore, I joined the Independent Florida Alligator as a staff writer, covering the ins and outs of UF and Gainesville. I covered the local Women's March and March for Our Lives. I reported on student government elections one month and watched the results roll-in alongside a local government candidate the next.
Journalism excites and motivates me because every day brings a different story to tell. I look forward to telling diverse stories and holding those in power accountable. In the meantime, I'll be juggling writing clips, doing homework and feeding my cat.
