“I am thrilled to be part of the News21 program. It’s a chance of a lifetime to work with editors like Leonard Downie Jr., Sharon Rosenhause and Gerald Jordan and to be part of a collaborative news project that delves into the topic of voting rights, an issue that could end up defining this election. Former News21 fellows have told me how beneficial this program is in shaping a future career in journalism.”
