In addition to daily beat reporting, I have taken on several large scale projects. My role has ranged from being in charge of the whole production, to working on a small part of the project. Regardless, I’m proud of the work produced from these collaborations.
Our team of reporters traveled to Phoenix from all over the country as part of the Dow Jones News Fund program, which was hosted by the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism at Arizona State University. We had one week, from May 19 to May 26 in 2018, to gather information and produce this website while attending workshops daily for training. I reported on the health issues homeless people face and curated multimedia products for the finished project.
In the 1800’s, Reno was home to one of the largest Chinatowns in the western United States. But, in 2018, there is no concentrated community of Chinese Americans in Reno. Reno's Chinatown was subject to decades of outright animosity, fueled by anti-Chinese sentiments by California's Working Man's Party. This resulted in Chinatown being burned to the ground on two different occasions. The documentary will explores life after the razing, through the perspective of the last business in Chinatown.
