Moriah Ratner is a photojournalism student in the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University. An opportunity to shadow Doug Mills, a New York Times photographer at the White House, sparked Moriah's interest in covering politics. Recently, she interned with The Hill, a political newspaper on Capitol Hill, as a press photographer covering hearings, press conferences and breaking news on Capitol Hill and at the White House. Following this experience, she spent a week interning at Annie Leibovitz's studio in New York City, assisting with administrative tasks and researching shoot concepts. Moriah is currently a staff photographer for Syracuse University's independent newspaper, The Daily Orange, and has previously held a position as an assistant photo editor. As a psychology minor, personal projects are often associated with aspects of childhood and the ways in which young adolescents cope with trauma. Her desire to express compassion drives her motivation for genuine visual storytelling. There is nothing that makes her happier than capturing a story that is unfolding right in front of her. She enjoys using photography as a way to share stories with the world.
