Jenna Hager is a contributing correspondent to NBC’s Today where she focuses on telling the inspiring stories of wonderful people doing great things across America.
In 2006, Hager traveled to Latin America as an intern with UNICEF. During her journey, she was inspired to write Ana’s Story: A Journey of Hope, a New York Times best seller based on the life of a
17-year-old single mother living with HIV and determined to shield her child from the abuse and neglect that riddled her own childhood. She is still very involved with UNICEF and is currently the chair of UNICEF’s Next Generation, an initiative dedicated to reducing the number of preventable childhood deaths around the world.
