Nadege Green comes from a print reporter background having covered local governments and politicians for the Miami Herald for six years.

At WLRN, Nadege covers social justice issues, the local transgender community and occasionally, dance. 

For her, journalism boils down to not only telling the stories of the people who are accessible, but also seeking out the voices we don't hear from, and telling those stories too.

She is a  graduate of Barry University where she majored in English with the hope of someday becoming the next great novelist — she’s still working on that dream.

WLRN is looking at the impact of children and teens killed by guns in Miami-Dade County through the voices of some of the people who are most affected.

Tequila Forshee was 12 years old when she was killed inside her grandmother's Miami Gardens home on Aug. 14, 2013.

Bullets ripped through the living room walls and windows striking Tequila as she was getting her hair braided.

Jada Page was shot in the head  in a drive-by shooting on August 28.  Two days later, she died from her injuries in the hospital. She was 8 years old.

The little girl who loved to dance and was the life of family gatherings was not the intended target.

Olympic gold medalist Brianna Rollins returned to Miami Northwestern Senior High where as a young freshman she got her first introduction to track & field.

She was showered with plaques, certificates and a proclamation that Sept. 15 will forever be known as Brianna Rollins Day. 

The admittedly shy athlete sported a white USA jersey and around her neck, her gold medal.

Miami blogger Starex Smith is exploring local food scenes from the perspective of a hungry black man.

His blog The Hungry Black Man is a mix of restaurant recommendations and profiles of food entrepreneurs across Florida and other states he visits.

But since Smith's home base is Miami, South Florida gets a lot of love on the blog.

As the first few weeks of school get underway, student supply lists in South Florida are sparking conversations, and in some cases, criticisms.

There are the usual requests: pencils, composition notebooks and bookbags. But as school budgets continue to shrink, teachers are also asking parents to supplement basic classroom items like copy paper, permanent markers and disinfectant wipes.

Natavia Davis saw some of these complaints play out on her Facebook feed with parents who have children in South Florida public schools.

Daheli Hall, a Miami-raised actress and filmmaker, used her upbringing in the 3-0-5 to inspire a recent short film for Disney Channel.

Hall recently directed, The Exchange, a short film that largely centered around a Haitian-American family. Disney Channel debuted 12 short films for back-to-school that can be streamed on its website, YouTube and other mobile Disney platforms.

You didn't have time to wait for the long list of results last night? Fear not.  The WLRN team has summarized the key takeaways of this primary election for South Florida.

Poll workers in South Florida saw a steady trickle of voters, though in some areas rain may have affected turnout in the afternoon and into the evening hours.

Today is Florida's primary election. Voters are headed to the polls and in South Florida, filling out ballots for state senator, state representatives, judges and local municipal and county elections.

Carmen Jackson has trained thousands of track runners in Miami’s Liberty City neighborhood. She’s the longtime coach of the girl’s track team at Miami Northwestern Senior High School--and her Lady Bulls team dominates. This year they won their eighth consecutive state championship.

Jackson was in Rio de Janeiro for the Olympics cheering on one of her former athletes, Liberty City native and Miami Northwestern grad Brianna Rollins. Rollins won big.

She is the first athlete from Miami to win a gold medal in an individual Olympic track and field event--the 100-meter hurdles.

A Haitian-American teenager who convinces her teacher to have a “home exchange” program is at the center of a new Disney Channel short film called “Exchange.”

Disney Channel rolled out 12 short films this month that can be streamed on YouTube and Disney platforms.

Haitian-Jamaican actress, writer and producer  Daheli Hall  created "Exchange," and it’s a film that will definitely resonate in South Florida--which probably shouldn't be a surprise since Hall is a Miami native.

At New York Grilled Cheese restaurant in Broward, Mia St. Louis is the  type of waitress who will stop and bust a move to whatever music is blaring from the speakers.

A delegation for Hillary Clinton met in Miami’s Liberty City neighborhood Friday to talk about gun violence.

 

Among the speakers were former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords of Arizona; her husband,  retired NASA astronaut  Mark Kelly, and South Florida Congresswoman Frederica Wilson. 

 

The group met in a closed-door meeting with community members who have been impacted by gun violence.

 

Charles Kinsey, an unarmed black man who was shot by a North Miami police officer, is now suing the officer who shot him.

Kinsey was shot in the leg by North Miami officer Jonathan Aledda. At the time, Kinsey  was trying to persuade his autistic client to return to a group home.
