Natalie Hamren, Mentor

Name: Natalie Hamren

Year: Junior

Major: Journalism

Minor: Marketing

Role: Story Editor

High School: Lakota West High School


This is my second year as a mentor for the academy, and I can’t wait to work with and meet new students again this year!

I’m the Editor-in-Chief for The Northerner, NKU’s independent, student news organization. I was an editorial intern this past spring for Cincinnati Magazine, and I also freelance for Cincinnati CityBeat. 

When I’m not working for The Northerner, you can find me geeking out over new Taylor Swift music, prancing around Walt Disney World, jammin’ to The National and alt-J or hating the Oxford Comma.


Favorite Social Media: Instagram. I love seeing travel photos. 

Dream job: I’d love to write for National Geographic or the New York Times. 

Fun Fact: I used to solely be a cat person, but now I say “hi” to every dog I see on the street. Or park. Or anywhere.
