NAHJ USC is a relatively new organization on campus, committed to bringing opportunity and student journalists together through workshops, panels, networking events, social events, and volunteer opportunities.

Our organization also partners with other organizations such as National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ), Asian American Journalists Association (AAJA), and Dímelo.

NAHJ is open to those of all majors, the only requirement is that you are a Hispanic interested in journalism!

In short, our organization is truly an incredible way to network with other Hispanic journalists and to have another small-knit family within USC!


2017 NAHJ USC E-Board


Greetings! I’m so excited that you chose to learn a bit about the National Association of Hispanic Journalists at USC. My name is Gabby Fernandez and I’m the current chapter president of NAHJ. I am now a senior and will be graduating in May 2018 with a double degree in Broadcast & Digital Journalism and Narrative Studies.

NAHJ has been a huge part of my college experience. I transferred to USC as a sophomore and made some of my first friends through this organization. From resume workshops to learning about different scholarships to editing help to meeting other inspirational students, I can honestly say that NAHJ has played a large role in my journalistic career.

I’ve interned at the Los Angeles Business Journal, NBC Nightly News, CBS’s Investigative Unit and Time Inc.’s MONEY Magazine. Through these experiences, I hope to someday become a digital news producer.


Hello friends! My name is Claudia Buccio, and I am the chapter Vice-President of NAHJ. This is an organization that has given me endless love and support during my college years. In NAHJ, I have found a welcoming community to lean on. Some of the first friends I made on campus were also members of this organization. I truly hope you can find a family in NAHJ just like I have.

A little bit about myself, I’m a proud Mexican-American who was born and raised in Southern California. I lived in Mexico for nine years, but I came back right after high school to pursue my dream of becoming a bilingual news reporter. I attended Santa Ana College for two years and transferred to USC as a junior. I am a two-time recipient of NAHJ’s Maria Elena Salinas’ scholarship. Thanks to this award, I was able to study abroad in London and graduate from my dream university. During my time as an undergraduate at USC, I have interned at Telemundo in Los Angeles and volunteered at USC Annenberg’s Media Center as a multimedia journalist and international anchor. I am passionate about covering Latino issues and international affairs. I am now a graduate student at USC pursuing a Master’s degree in journalism and editor of Dímelo, a social platform for young Latino audiences. On the long run, I hope to work as a television and digital reporter who gives a voice to heart felt stories that many times go untold.


¡Bienvenido a NAHJ USC! We’re excited that you’re reading a little bit more about us and I hope that you’ll join our family. My name is Sofia Bosch and I’m currently the Treasurer and Event Coordinator of our NAHJ chapter. I am sophomore and am currently a Journalism major and a double minor (International Relations and Communication, Policy & Law).

I cannot thank NAHJ enough for the doors it’s opened for me. This past summer, after freshman year, I had the opportunity to intern at CNBC in New York for ten weeks through the NAHJ NBC Summer Fellowship Program. I had an incredible time working as a production intern for the “Fast Money” team and I know that this wouldn’t have been possible without NAHJ. Also, I’ve met some of my closest friends through NAHJ and I’ve learned so much by being surrounded by such talented individuals.

We have so many amazing networking and social events planned for the year and we hope you’ll join us!
