Emma Manring

Program Assistant

I have always been fascinated by journalism and the world of news since I was a kid. My interest in current events led me to study sociology in college to learn even more. After I graduated college, ICFJ stood out to me not only because of these interests, but for its mission supporting journalism globally. I am inspired by the work of ICFJ and the vast programs supporting journalism in different regions of the world. As a program assistant, my role focuses on program administration and support, specifically those in the Latin American region.

My background: My internship at ICFJ was vital toward fostering my career interests and ultimately leading to my current position. Besides interning with ICFJ, I have interned with the embassy of Spain in Washington, DC, and worked as a Spanish teaching assistant in college. I am passionate about global issues, the Spanish language and cultural affairs.

I received my Bachelor of Arts from the College of William & Mary in both Hispanic studies and sociology. My concentration in my sociology major is social problems, policy and justice. I am fluent in Spanish.
