La Stampa, Multimedia Journalist/San Paolo Fellow

In 2014 I received the prestigious San Paolo Fellowship, which allowed me to travel to Italy and work for La Stampa, the country’s third largest newspaper. In addition to producing multimedia pieces, I wrote about U.S. issues from an international perspective for their web desk. I covered the Ferguson protests, social media activism and women’s rights issues.

A Ferguson armati come in Iraq. Negli Usa troppi poliziotti in assetto da combattimento (“Ferguson cops are armed for Iraq. U.S. has too many policemen in combat gear”). This analysis of police militarization landed on the publication’s homepage at the height of the protests.
