Allie Hinga's Profile
Allie Hinga is a dual journalism and English major from the suburbs of Houston, Texas — League City, to be exact.
Allie works as an assistant city editor and copy editor at the Missourian, where she uses the skills she's honed in the newsroom to help other reporters shape their stories for print and the website.
She has reported for the Missourian twice, first for the education beat in spring 2012, and then for the community beat in spring 2013. Allie left Columbia behind for summer 2013 to intern at the Telegraph Herald in Dubuque, Iowa, where she produced stories on a wide variety of topics. She also regularly shot video for the website.
When she isn't reporting, Allie enjoys playing guitar, reading good books and volunteering. She especially enjoys working with young people and has held a couple of camp counseling positions over the years. Those jobs have taught her the arts of leadership, creativity and enthusiasm. She also coaxed countless children through the last parts of all-day hikes.
Allie also enjoys blogging, and often posts about her journalism experiences at alliehinga.wordpress.com.
