Contribution at ABC 7 Chicago

As a news planning intern I contributed to the following articles through pitching the story, contacting sources and conducting some interviews as well. 

South Side Weekly

I pitched the idea of an edition of the magazine to commemorate the 100 year anniversary of the 1919 Race Riots in Chicago. I contributed this article, which became the cover, to the final issue along with other incredible pieces by local journalists.

As the midwest correspondent I have written about the ways that journalists and journalism institutions represent the ethics that the media has to its readers and viewers. ​

As a contributing writer I wrote many feature stories on events throughout the city, different injustices and giving a voice to those who are not as widely heard. ​
