Jourdan Bennett-Begaye is a Diné journalist currently stationed in Nenahnezad of the Diné Nation. She identifies as The Towering House Clan, The Coyote Pass Clan of Jemez, The Mexican People, and The Hopi with Red Running Into the Water Clan. She completed the Newhouse Minorities Fellowship at the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University in New York. Obtaining her master’s degree in Magazine, Newspaper and Online Journalism takes her one step closer to creating her own magazine for Indigenous communities (and exploring Mother Earth). Before the career change, she obtained a bachelor’s degree in Athletic Training at Fort Lewis College and played collegiate volleyball. Her love for dance and working with Indigenous youth led to co-founding the Survival of the First Voices Festival. Right now, Jourdan tries her best to freelance, learn Diné Bizaad, play with her nephews and niece, and figure out more ways to change the world.
