I’m Ashley Belanger, a writer and editor from Florida, now based in Boston. Currently trying to see as many whales as possible while in New England. Focused after experiences doing in-depth reporting for Teen Vogue, including Wedlocked a 5-part series on child marriage in the U.S., I joined MIT’s Graduate Program in Science Writing to further develop my reporting skills over the next year. Most recently, my investigative reporting was supported by the National Geographic Society. Currently, I am an intern for New England Center for Investigative Reporting. I have served as contributing writer and research assistant for Undark Magazine, Knight Science Journalism, Gastropod, and MIT News. Before that, I served as a music critic and associate editor for Orlando Weekly. While there, my writing was recognized by the Association of Alternative Newsmedia.
