About Paige

Paige Leskin graduated in March 2018 from Northwestern University's Medill School with a dual bachelors degree in journalism and political science. She currently lives in right outside of New York City, so she is able to fortunately see her dog as much as she wants.

Paige completed her three-month journalism residency with Inverse, where she focused on technology and culture stories. As a member of Northwestern's Knight Lab, she was chosen to assist ProPublica in the launch of its Midwest bureau by contributing research on audience engagement strategy. Previously, she has also interned for PBS, where she helped to develop LGBTQ+ educational resources, and PIX11 News, where worked as a digital producer to publish breaking news online and run the network's social media accounts.

She spent a huge amount of her ungraduate career working for NU's student-run newspaper, The Daily Northwestern. She joined the paper as a reporter as soon as she stepped on campus, and rapidly rose through the ranks to serve as metro desk editor, and then managing editor, in only her sophomore year.

Paige's reporting has been featured in national markets, and her bylines can be found on USA Today, Global Post, and more.
