My name is Stacy Fernández and I'm a journalist with a passion for social justice reporting.
I'm at The Dallas Morning News for the summer working as a metro intern. I've been writing feature stories while publishing daily stories for five of the suburban communities surrounding Dallas.
In my last year at Syracuse University I'll be a Senior Staff Writer over at The Daily Orange, Syracuse's independent student newspaper, after serving as Feature Editor. I've worked at the D.O. for the past three years. While the news section is my original stomping ground I've found a home in features covering culture and urban affairs.
During summer 2017 I was at The Buffalo News getting drenched while covering two flash floods and a double tornado — it was awesome. When I wasn't wading through water I was reporting on crime, community events and developing enterprise stories.
Outside of reporting I enjoy listening to the latest author-narrated audiobook, volunteering at the local Latino cultural center and searching for thrift store treasure. I also love visual storytelling and am honing my skills behind a DSLR camera. Yes, my family is tired of me always taking photos around them. No, I won't be stopping anytime soon.
You can usually spot me dancing along to the music playing in my headphones. Go to move: a smooth merengue.
