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 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.
In the past, she has reported for the Missourian's education and community beats, and she has also worked as a copy editor for the Missourian. For summer 2013, Allie left Columbia behind to intern at the Telegraph Herald in Dubuque, Iowa, where she covered a wide variety of stories.
When she isn't reporting, Allie enjoys playing guitar, reading good books and volunteering. She particularly 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.
