CT Examiner Welcomes New Staff

By now you’ve probably read her work. Her story with Julia Werth on the reopening of schools is already our third-most-read story since launching in May 2019. Our newest staff reporter, Emilia Otte, joins the staff of CT Examiner on September 1.

Emilia is a graduate of Bryn Mawr College. She earned her masters from NYU in Global Journalism with a focus on European and Mediterranean studies.

She has previously written for the Poughkeepsie Journal and Hudson Valley News, and has bylines in Business Insider, Le Monde Diplomatique, Latin American News Dispatch, Civic Ideas and the New York Transatlantic.

Emilia spent a summer in Italy reporting on orphans of domestic violence. She loves rowing, opera music, reading about new scientific discoveries and drinking espresso.  She can be reached at e.otte@ctexaminer.com
