A Bit About Amanda Rosa

I am a print and digital reporter from Miami Beach, Florida. I'm currently a metro reporting fellow at The New York Times living in New York City. 

I graduated from the University of Florida May 2020 (in the middle of a pandemic) with a Bachelor of Science in Journalism and a minor in Latin American Studies. ​

My reporting has focused on higher education, immigration, LGBTQ issues, social media stories and criminal court cases. My work can be found in The New York Times, Miami Herald, WUFT News and my first newspaper, The Independent Florida Alligator.  

My earliest memory of journalism was my elementary school morning routine. Every morning, I sat in the living room repeating everything the news anchors said to my mother as she got dressed. She liked to humor me. 

I'm motivated by telling diverse stories and holding the powerful accountable. When I'm not reporting, I'm taking photos of my cat.
