Hello! My name is Lynnette and I am a multimedia journalist, feminist, and all-around geek.
Born and raised in Puerto Rico, I spent my time writing down daily thoughts and events in countless journals mimicking my childhood fictional hero: Harriet the Spy. Little did I know my life would come full circle as a young adult by attending Florida Atlantic University, where I earned my bachelor’s degree in Multimedia Journalism on August 2017.
On December 2017, I packed my bags and bid farewell to the Sunshine State as I embarked on my new journey as video producer for The State Newspaper in Columbia, South Carolina where I cover news, politics and features stories within the visuals department.
Previously, I was a freelance journalist with bylines in several websites and print publications on a variety of beats such as travel features, community events coverage and pop culture news. My goal is to become either a foreign correspondent abroad or travel around the world producing multimedia stories on the subjects of culture, social justice, environment and technology—all of this with my trusted equipment and my curious nature.
In my spare time, I enjoy binge-watching TV shows, playing video games, traveling with my husband and cuddling with my cat.
