    Money, Money, Money
    by Aleksandra Todorova
    Two weeks after graduating from NYU's Magazine Journalism program--with an exhausting but memorable semester in Portfolio--I started work as a reporter at, a Dow Jones publication affiliated with SmartMoney Magazine and the Wall Street Journal. I report on a variety of personal finance topics, including debt management and identity theft, and write an advice column, service pieces and investigative stories.

    During my semester in the Portfolio program, I wrote about illegal immigrants in post-911 New York City.
