Izzie Ramirez is a journalist living in New York City.

I’m a freelance reporter based in New York City, specializing in culture, climate change migration and city news. I’m also a senior at New York University, double-majoring in Journalism and Global Liberal Studies with a concentration in Politics, Rights and Development.

Currently, I’m the Editor-in-Chief of NYU Local — the most read on-campus news blog, with more than 160,000 monthly views. At Local, I’ve covered nearly every major march in Washington D.C. since the 2016 election, launched a food writing column and collaborated with WNYU’s “The Rundown” to produce podcasts. 

I’m in the process of writing two theses about climate migration (one will be a legal analysis on citizenship options, the other an in-depth look at one coastal city). In addition to these projects, I’m hoping to expand my storytelling methods with audio, interactive design and AR/VR through my minor in Integrated Digital Media.

Read my work in Vice, Bitch Media and Greatist. You can find my resume here.
