I’m Valentina S. Diaz, a writer passionate about social justice working to ethically explore intersectional identities to convey the lived experience of marginalized communities.

Past projects include a food insecurity beat delving into Onondaga County and investigating and reporting the experience of Latine students attending a predominantly white institution.

I currently attend Syracuse University, pursuing degrees in Magazine Journalism at S.I. Newhouse School Of Public Communications and Political Science at Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs.
