When she was 14, Zalome Briceño moved from Peru to North Palm Beach, Fla. Straddling two cultures and speaking two languages pushed her to become a bilingual multimedia journalist.
Briceño began working on her journalism career in high school. She attended a magnet school which focused on television, radio and film production. After graduating, Briceño enrolled at the University of Florida, where she is pursuing a degree in communications and political science.
Though she enjoys covering hard news stories, Briceño has an affinity for investigative reporting.
“I always say to myself never close doors,” Briceño said.
She hopes to work in both Spanish and English media.
