Let me briefly introduce myself. My name is Finley Muratova and I'm 22 years old. I am a journalist, fact-checker, researcher and higher education Title IX expert. In 2022, I graduated from New York University with a double-major in Journalism and Environmental Studies alongside a Creative Writing minor.
I'm Ukrainian but I was born and raised in Moscow, Russia. Upon graduating from an international British school, I moved to New York in 2018. I am legally allowed to work in the U.S.
During my time at NYU, I worked for Washington Square News in in a variety of positions. As a sophomore, I interned for PULP Magazine, doing both editorial and marketing tasks. As a junior, I interned for The Nation's current publisher, Katrina vanden Heuvel, as an editorial and research assistant. A month after graduation, I was honored to join The Nation's Victor S. Navasky internship program as a part of the summer-fall 2022 cohort.
At the same time, I freelanced for Novaya Gazeta, one of the last remaining independent media in Russia. I worked for The New Yorker Documentary as a translator and an advisor and have been published in Rewire News Group. In the recent months, I've been freelancing as a fact-checker and researcher for Insider, In These Times, and The Appeal.
My current beat revolves around the way the justice system in the U.S. mistreats victims of sexual and interpersonal violence. In the past year, I covered the war in Ukraine continually.

I hope you have a lovely day!
