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. I identify as non-binary and use the gender-neutral they/them pronouns. 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. As a high school sophomore, I got admitted to an international boarding school in Oxford, England, which I graduated from in 2018. That same year, I moved to New York for college and decided to stay in the country upon graduating. I am legally allowed to work in the U.S.

I started working for Washington Square News in 2018 and have stayed there for two and a half years. Most of my time there was spent on the senior management team and as a member of our affiliate magazine, Under the Arch. In the fall of 2020, my colleagues and I resigned to stand up to our new racist advisor appointed without the staff's consent. Over the winter and spring of 2021 I interned for PULP Magazine as an editorial coordination, I also ran their social media accounts and assisted with marketing as well as advertising for PULP Public School content. In the summer and fall of 2021, I interned for The Nation's current publisher, Katrina vanden Heuvel, as an editorial and research assistant. I was also honored to join The Nation's Victor S. Navasky internship program as a part of the summer-fall 2022 cohort.I have freelanced for Novaya Gazeta, including working on the documentary on Anna Politkovskaya's 15th murder anniversary. I have also worked for The New Yorker Documentary as a translator and an advisor and have been published in Rewire News Group.

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!
