Nadine White is a news reporter at HuffPost UK where she specialises in race and social affairs. Her work was recently shortlisted at the prestigious Amnesty UK Media Awards - celebrating the best of human rights reporting. Nadine has previously worked as a journalist and weekend editor at The Voice newspaper - Britain's biggest black publication. There, her exclusive interview with a Windrush victim prompted the Home Office to repatriate him back to the UK from Jamaica, where he was stranded for over a decade.
Raised in pre-gentrification Brixton, south London, Nadine is particularly passionate about amplifying the perspectives of the UK's most disenfranchised and marginalised groups. Her work is impactful and has influenced the national news agenda on a number of occasions - from her Ryanair race row scoop to 'offensive' GCSE textbook exclusive. The 26-year-old has enjoyed endorsement from respected media institutions such as The Economist, The Daily Mirror and The London Press Club.
