At her college graduation, Jordana delivered a commencement address about embracing the unknown. A few weeks later, she took her own advice and booked a one-way ticket to Sri Lanka.
For a year, Jordana reported for the country’s oldest, most widely read English newspaper as a Princeton in Asia fellow. Covering the women and gender beat, her stories included an investigation into sexual harassment on public transportation and a feature on tsunami widows in the fishing industry. In her spare time, she hosted a web series, learned to surf, and impressed locals with her tolerance for spice.
Before that, Jordana studied nonfiction creative writing at Columbia, where she was president of her senior class and contributed to four campus publications. Off campus, she wrote about modern love for the New York Times, worked on two political campaigns, and served as the research assistant for a best-selling book on gender dynamics in the workplace.
Born on the West Coast and raised on the East, Jordana feels at home wherever the sun shines.
