I am proud to say that my in-depth journalism course that worked on the Divided Families project at Arizona State University has won the college print journalism RFK Memorial award!.
I am posting two soundslides done on two different stories, the first is of Courtney Sargent’s A Generation Abandoned about seniors abandoned in DIF homes in Agua Prieta, Sonora and Douglas, Arizona border.
Ryan Kost and I worked on a story about three American children abandoned in Mexico who had spent nearly two years in a Mexican orphanage even though they had their American birth certificates on file, you can see that project, Los Ninos Mejia as well.
Also here are all the students I had the pleasure of working with:
I’ve been going to the orphanage for a little over two years now, here are a couple of older posts . . . although I have many more that I didn’t properly tag in the past.
