Noelle Haro-Gomez is originally from Tucson, Arizona. She moved across the country to become a staff photographer at Public Opinion in Chambersburg, Penn., after graduating from the University of Arizona with a double major in journalism and Spanish.

In 2015, she was selected as a photographer for the New York Times Student Journalism Institute, where she also served as a photo editor.

In January 2014, she became a Chips Quinn Scholar and interned at Public Opinion as a photographer and multimedia producer for the spring. That summer, Noelle was selected to take part in a workshop with renowned photographer Gary Knight VII: A Narrative Passage Through Cambodia. It was an intensive immersion workshop in photography where students were placed into a culturally rich environment and taught the skills to identify, research and document meaningful stories.

Noelle’s photographs have appeared in USA Today, The Global Post, The Arizona Daily Star, Tucson Weekly, The Nogales International, Inside Tucson Business and the Coachella Valley Independent.
