"Where do I begin? I was really craving mentorship from journalists who saw reporting in a similar light: in-depth reporting that broadens perspectives. Through SOJOWB, I gained confidence and fostered my curiosity and desire to keep learning. I was also challenged through Stephanie's encouragement to pursue a story much bigger than me - Stephanie has guided - and still guides me post-program - on how to efficiently approach this reporting. She's been there to steer me back in the right direction when I get fixated on things that
make the story even more complex. Through her teaching, I'm able to refocus myself on
the why of the story - a skill that's proven beneficial in my reporting back home.
SOJOWB has a really special place in my heart and I hope I can make them proud!
