Arelis Hernández joins the Orlando Sentinel as breaking news reporter. She was most recently a staff writer for Diverse Issues in Higher Education.
Arelis graduated from the Univ. of Maryland only a year ago. She has interned for the AP, the Baltimore Sun, washingtonpost.com and the Orlando Sentinel.
She tells me she has been “swept up in the excitement” of the new job. She hopes her writing will “bring communities together to learn and understand from and about each other as America changes.”
