Yamiche Alcindor’s Biography

Born to Haitian-born immigrant parents, she was given the name Yamiche Léone Alcindor at birth. It has been established that she was born in the Southern Florida city of Miami where she equally grew up but the exact date of her birth is still being contented. It was in the ’80s but the particular year is not known, though it has been placed between 1986 and 1987. The Haitian-American national has also failed to provide the details of her early life.

The records are regrettably blank on her early education but according to sources, she took her childhood love of writing into publishing, writing poems and short stories. She ultimately steered her career into journalism in high school. She interned at the Westside Gazette, a local African-American newspaper, and the Miami Herald in 2005 where she covered stories about the neighborhoods she had grown up in.

Yamiche Alcindor is an alum of Georgetown University where she earned a bachelor’s degree in English and Government with a minor in African-American studies in 2009. She joined the African-American sorority, Alpha Kappa Alpha as a student. Highly focused on paving a way for her career in journalism, she interned at The Seattle Times in 2006 and went back to the Miami Herald the following year. In her junior year, she interned with the Botswanan newspaper Mmegi and then The Washington Post in 2009. She received her masters in broadcast news and documentary filmmaking in 2015 from the New York University.

Career

Yamiche Alcindor, inspired by the African-American journalist Gwen Ifill wanted to become a civil rights journalist. Since she became a journalist, she has covered and highlighted many issues that affect African-Americans. Following her graduation, she landed her first full-time job as a news reporter at Newsday in Melville, New York where she worked for two years. Then, she joined USA Today in December 2011 as a multimedia reporter, covering national breaking news such as the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.

She left USA Today after four years in 2015 and became a frequent political contributor to NBC News and MSNBC. Alcindor has appeared in programs such as PoliticsNation with Al Sharpton, Hardball with Chris Matthews, and Meet the Press. In November 2015, she joined The New York Times as a political reporter and videographer. In her new base, she covered such events as the presidential campaigns of Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders as well as produced a documentary titled The Trouble with Innocence (2015) which tells the story of a man wrongly convicted of murder.

Alcindor was named the Emerging Journalist of the Year by the National Association of Black Journalists in 2013. Three years later, she was nominated for a Shorty Award in the Journalist category and went on to win an award at the Syracuse University’s Toner Prize ceremony in a tribute to Ifill the following year.
