Native New Hampshirite, Eliza Mackintosh is a Special Correspondent for the Washington Post’s London bureau. A recent alumni of the honors program at the University of New Hampshire, she majored in English journalism and communication, graduating Summa Cum Laude and Phi Beta Kappa.
Eliza returns to London after interning for the Post during the 2012 Olympics, where she contributed to reporting on social media platforms, in addition to writing for the paper. She appeared in short videos as a Socialcam video correspondent, managed social media content on Pinterest for an Olympics – London 2012 board, and contributed to an Olympics live blog. She also interned for the Post’s London bureau during the previous summer (2011) and contributed to reporting during the News International phone-hacking scandal, which led to the shuttering of Rupert Murdoch’s tabloid newspaper the News of the World.
