Hi, my name is Antara, and I’m a journalism and pre-health student at the University of Florida College of Journalism and Communications. I’m interested in health, science and data reporting — but I’d love to tackle any good story. Some highlights of my year: On Election Day, I worked for Pro-Publica’s Electionland Project to track issues at the polls in real-time using all kinds of social media tools like DataMinr, Facebook Signal, Tweetdeck and Check. I learned how to use FEC data and mySQL to write about campaign financing trends in the state of Florida for WUFT News. I also presented my research in University of Florida’s College of Medicine at UF’s undergraduate research symposium.
Check out my work, send me a news tip or just say hello!
