Bilingual Multimedia Reporter (Spanish)

Location icon United States

Based in Los Angeles | Covering Latino Communities in the U.S. | Community Journalist

Since 2011, Yuliana Salinas has held diverse roles including in public relations & social media, non-profit management, and most recently media buying. Her roles at Olson and La Raza newspaper became the foundation for her interest in the communications field. But ultimately, her passion for writing and interest in consumer insights helped land her first Public Relations agency opportunity at Elemento L2. This was a rewarding role that gave her the tools to develop social media campaigns and support marketing communication efforts on behalf of clients. After working in the communications field, she decided to make a jump to the non-profit sector as a way to give back to the community that she grew up in and later returned to her Marcom roots.

Though her interest in writing and journalism stems from the age of 12, [she even reported the AP news at Emaus Radio throughout high school, a 2-hour youth-led program that aired every Sunday on WCEV-AM 1450] it wasn’t until most recently that she began writing and showcasing her works. During her time in college, she participated in MUTV where she was able to shoot and edit packages that would air that same day. With this background, Yuliana returned to grad school to pursue her master's in journalism to strengthen her writing and start a career as a multimedia journalist.

She has successfully placed blog posts in Gozamos and Huffington Post, and in 2016 she was named a Fellow for Bread for the World; an organization whose movement is to end hunger and poverty in the U.S. and abroad.

Today, she is passionate about covering the growing Latino community in the U.S. and is committed to community journalism. By using her bilingual skills she hopes to make a difference in finding local stories and sharing memorable content that needs to be told. She left the Windy City in the fall of 2018, and currently calls sunny L.A. home.

Yuliana grew up in Chicago, IL and received her Bachelor of Arts degree in Broadcast & Electronic Communication and English from Marquette University in Milwaukee, WI. She completed a Master's in Journalism in 2018 at DePaul University in Chicago, IL.
