Daily 49er

Multimedia Managing Editor
Yasmin Cortez transferred to Cal State Long Beach in Fall 2015 from Cerritos College where she was the Multimedia Associate Editor for Talon Marks. She was previously the Social Media Editor and the Summer News Editor for Daily 49er and has been the Multimedia Managing Editor since Fall 2016. She is also a contributing writer and photographer for DIG Magazine, the Social Media Editor at The Edge Long Beach and was previously a reporter for Beach Access at College Beat Television.

Yasmin is an award winning journalist and received Best Breaking News awards from the Society of Professional Journalists and the California College Media Association for her social media coverage of the Paris Attack incident at CSULB. She also placed in the top 20 for the Multimedia II/News Competition for the Hearst Awards and was the only one from California in her category.

When she isn't in the newsroom you can find her filming short videos, skateboarding, playing the drums and alto sax on her spare time, practicing Ballet Folklorico or playing soccer on the CSULB soccer fields. She hopes to become a multimedia journalist and travel the world or eventually work in the film industry.
