About

izzieheadshot2

Izzie Ramirez is a journalist living in New York City.

I’m a reporter based in New York City, specializing in protest coverage, immigration and city news. I’m also a student at New York University, double-majoring in Journalism and Global Liberal Studies with a concentration in Politics, Rights and Development.

Currently, I’m the city editor for NYU Local — the independent on-campus news blog — as well the social intern for Salon. I’ve covered nearly every major march in Washington D.C. since the 2016 election, researched the Freddie Gray and Charlottesville protests for my senior thesis and launched a food writing column. With my minor in Integrated Digital Media, I hope to expand my storytelling methods with audio, interactive design and AR/VR. In my free time, I like to blog about basketball.
