hello to those who have stumbled upon my portfolio! whether you’re a friend, family member, future employer or none of the above, i hope you enjoy the stories that i have passionately written throughout this page.
i recently graduated with my bachelor of science in journalism with a minor in african-american studies at florida a&m university. currently, i'm working at apartment therapy as an assistant editor for the news and culture sections, but i'm still available for writing assignments including music, food justice, veganism, pop culture, and black culture. you can find my words in Scalawag Magazine, Healthline, Washington Post, them, Uproxx, Harper's Bazaar, Teen Vogue, and more. i'm also a member of NABJ, NLGJA and ONA.
in my spare time, you can find me roller skating, creating playlists on spotify or being a vegan foodie! if you enjoy my articles here and want more of me, i also have an (inactive) podcast available on apple, spotify and more titled On Air with Noella and a (somewhat inactive) newsletter on substack. i'm also in the process of writing a book revolving around fandom culture and misogynoir!
find me on social media via instagram on @noella.jpg and twitter via @yonoella.
