Isabella Cueto is a rising senior at the University of Miami. She's majoring in journalism and theatre arts because she didn't like math enough to be a brain scientist and this was the second best option.
At the ripe age of 12, she started a terrible and gradually not-so-terrible fashion blog, and her love of writing has blossomed ever since. At UM, she has spent most of her time out of class making costumes for productions at the Jerry Herman Ring Theatre and writing for the student newspaper, The Miami Hurricane. She will take over as editor-in-chief in the fall.
One time she had no plans for Valentine's Day so she reported on a crime instead and got a byline in the Miami Herald. She has also contributed to The New Tropic, Miami.com and The Medill Justice Project.
Isabella, like most young journalists, wants to be the next Woodward and/or Bernstein, but more ethnic. She loves deep dives into the human condition. She has a thing for spotting corruption. If left alone in a room with a dry erase marker, she's been known to cover every surface with brainstorm diagrams.
