Global Nation Editor/Reporter
Monica Campbell focuses on immigration coverage in the United States. She works with a network of journalists based throughout the country to uncover how America’s shifting demographics are changing everything from culture to politics. Before joining The World, Campbell reported internationally from Europe and Afghanistan and, from 2003 to 2009, from Latin America and the Caribbean. From her base in Mexico City, Campbell’s stories ranged from indigenous education along Nicaragua’s Mosquito Coast and the investigation of civil war crimes in Guatemala to Mexico’s rising drug cartel-related violence and dissident poets in Cuba. She also served as the Mexico representative for the Committee to Protect Journalists. In 2009-10, she was a Nieman Fellow at Harvard University.
Campbell has a master’s degree in Latin American Studies from New York University and a bachelor’s degree in journalism from San Jose State University.
She now lives in San Francisco, not far from the mountaintop one-room schoolhouse of her childhood.
