Digital Director + Editor

Alexa Gagosz is a recent graduate of Suffolk University and current Masters of Media Innovation student at Northeastern University. She hailed from a small, sleepy town in the southeast corner of Connecticut until she started her life over at 18 when she moved to Boston. Almost instantly, she discovered what made her thrive: journalism. She filled the position of Editor-in-Chief of The Suffolk Journal, where she rebranded an 80-year-old, archaic collegiate newspaper and brought it into the digital age and ended up earning second place for Best Newspaper Apple Award in the country. She was also the Acting International News Editor and helped pull a a win for Best Website with the Associated Collegiate Press. She has clips and multimedia work in the Hartford Courant, Chicago Tribune, ABC News and the Norwich Bulletin.

In the future, it is her personal goal to figure a way to “save journalism” in the sense of salvaging the newspaper industry. It is no secret that the subscription to a newspaper is a gift to those who find reading the truth and documentation of humankind priceless, however, there is a growing percentage of the population that do not find it as popular. It’s Alexa’s intention to rid that stigma.
