I'm an undergraduate student at Northeastern University where I am pursuing a Bachelor's Degree in Journalism with a minor in Women's, Gender and Sexuality Studies. I am currently participating in a 6-month co-op program as The World's Digital Production Assistant.
My first reporting position was as stringer for my tiny hometown's weekly paper, The Littleton Independent. After covering selectmen's and planning board meetings - where I was often the only attendee - I accepted a co-op position at The Boston Globe's North Metro bureau, where I continued to cover local news. In the Spring of 2013 I spent four months studying in London and fell in love with everything about the city.
The World is my first foray into the realm of international news and I could not be more excited.
In my free time, I can be found consuming useless pop culture trivia and playing music.
Conflict & Justice
In a town in Syria, two young boys were exploring outside when they found an electronic device. That device turned out to be an explosive, and they were badly wounded. Fortunately, they were quickly brought to a hospital in neighboring Jordan. But despite their dire circumstances, the two managed to persevere — while their friendship grew stronger than ever.
Arts, Culture & Media
Latvian animator Signe Baumane has battled depression for most of her life — a battle that was made even more difficult by the oppressive culture of the Soviet Union. But when she discovered her depression had hereditary roots, she decided to make a film about the illness, one that's surreal, dark and funny all at once.
Conflict & Justice
The CIA's recently-released torture report has sparked a national conversation about the perceived horrors of torture — as well as its potential merits. But how do Americans who have served on the front lines feel about torture tactics? We asked veterans to weigh in.
Science, Tech & Environment
It's no surprise that Twitter is changing the way we communicate with each other — but it's also changing the way we communicate with our government. Meet Arturo Sarukhan, a former ambassador from Mexico and a pioneer in the world of digital diplomacy.
Development & Education
As many as 1,000 foreign workers have been killed on construction sites in Qatar since it was awarded the 2022 World Cup four years ago. Poor pay, inhumane conditions, malnutrition and death — all are part of life for the men trying to build the new stadiums and hotels, while supporting their families.
