Karina Flores was born and raised in Goshen. She was educated through Goshen Community Schools and then the city’s Christian liberal arts college, and she received her bachelor's degree from Goshen College.
Karina majored in broadcasting and minored in journalism. She was a disc jockey for the college’s radio station, 91.1 The Globe, and took over as news director of the school’s television news program, The Correspondent. She also served as a worship assistant and wrote articles for the college newspaper.
Karina's love for journalism stems from a passion for seeking out the truth for the common good. She hopes to use her voice and platform to impact the lives of community members. Her favorite kinds of stories to cover are human interest stories about everyday people and stories that uncover injustice.
For Karina, “This Is Home.” She continues to live in Michiana with her husband, Luis, and two German shepherds. She serves as the worship pastor at a local Spanish-speaking church. She sings, plays piano, violin, and is very family-focused. Karina grew up in a family of six and has eight aunts and uncles on one side of her family and nine on the other side. Because of her big family and life-long ties to Michiana, she works hard to serve other local families through her work.
