When I enrolled in the Master’s in Journalism and Media Innovation program at the University of Nevada, Reno, I earned an assistantship through my Peace Corps Coverdell Fellowship. As per Fellowship requirements, I had to work with an underserved community.
This in turn opened the opportunity for me to work as a reporter for Our Town Reno, a multimedia street reporting collective in Reno. For the next year and a half, I interviewed individuals at their homeless camps and shelters, as well as community activists and political leaders.
What follows on this page are a few pieces related to my time working for Our Town Reno.
