Freshman, University of Florida
Loren Miranda is a first-year student in the College of Journalism and Communications at the University of Florida with a side concentration in political science. She plans on being active in the local newspaper, The Alligator, when she arrives on campus in the fall. In her free time, she volunteers in her community through local food pantries and charities and loves spending quality time with her dog, Wanda. A member of Poynter’s teen fact-checking network for almost two years now, Loren is excited to continue her partnership with MediaWise and continue teaching the public media literacy skills. She hopes to one day become a political journalist and share important stories to change the world for the better.
