Harsha Nahata is a Producer at In The Thick. Previously, she was our New York Women’s Foundation IGNITE! Fellow. Harsha received a master’s degree from the Newmark School of Journalism where she focused on audio and cross-cultural reporting. Harsha is interested in storytelling as a way to understand identity and is drawn to audio reporting because it reminds her of how her ancestors passed down their oral histories.
While in Michigan, she made a documentary about second-generation Asian Americans and conversations that go unsaid in immigrant families. Her work has been featured in Feeling My Flo, a podcast about menstruation, StoryCorps, The Juggernaut, Brown Girl Magazine, and the Bklyner, among others. She graduated with a B.A. in public policy from the University of Michigan.
