Minh (Nate) Ha, a recent magna cum laude graduate from American University with a Bachelor’s degree in journalism, is joining the Verite newsroom as a general assignment reporter.
Ha has a passion for storytelling and experience covering various topics. His reporting work includes stories about how second-generation Vietnamese Americans fought to protect their community center in Virginia amid redevelopment plans and the construction and delays of the Washington D.C. metro.
Originally from Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, Ha has spent the past four years in Washington, D.C.
In addition to his work in journalism, Ha is an avid photographer who loves capturing images that tell stories.
Verite is a Black-led non-profit digital news organization that launched in late July 2022 with a mission to elevate voices from communities that have been historically dismissed or ignored by creating thoughtful, solution-based coverage on crucial topics such as education, housing, health care, criminal justice, the environment and politics.
Also committed to training the next generation of minority journalists, Verite recently announced the second class in its reporting fellowship program.
