Fellow, Us@250

Natalia Alamdari is a senior reporter at the Flatwater Free Press based in Omaha, Nebraska. There, she covers rural Nebraska, driving around the state finding unique and unexpected stories where no one else is looking. She's taken readers inside crypto mining farms and prairies filled with bison; and even overseas to a hotel of Ukrainian refugees and Nebraska volunteers in Warsaw, Poland. She is a Mizzou grad and a native Texan. Her fellowship project will highlight immigrants moving into rural Nebraska communities, managing life alongside their long-standing, mostly White neighbors.
