Romina Puga is a multimedia and video fellow for Univision News.
Romina was born and raised in Miami, Florida. Her mother is from Argentina and her father is from Chile, so she grew up between Hispanic and American traditions. Her mission in life is to meld her mixed backgrounds until they can agree on one sandwich de miga-eating, Pablo Neruda-reading, Family Guy-loving middle ground.
She graduated from NYU undergrad recently with a joint degree in Media Studies/Communications and Journalism, and left her 6-story walk-up shoebox apartment in Manhattan for spacious Miami beach living.
Romi began editing videos on iMovie when her parents bought an iMac for the house. She used to shoot and edit fake news/talk shows, music videos, and horror movies with her friends. In college Romi focused on print and interned at Nylon Magazine and Vogue.com. Eventually though, video crept its way back into her life. So now she combines the two mediums, best of both worlds.
