Despite serving in multiple editor positions, I remain committed to my roots as a city reporter:
February 28, 2018: USC alumnus ramps up race in California’s 48th district
February 7, 2018: USC Keck program aims to improve mental health of caregivers
September 17, 2017: After Charlottesville, a student’s path to recovery and resilience
November 28, 2017: Former foster youth look to change the system they were raised in
November 3, 2017: Confronting a stubborn system: The STEM pipeline for women engineers
January 9, 2017: Got a question? Ask Tommy Bot, USC’s first ever chatbot
The projects I managed tackled community-related issues that affect South L.A. residents or the student body:
Spring 2018 project: A Home Away From Home examines USC’s growing presence in the South L.A. community. As features editor, I worked closely with our news editor on a story about tenants who are fighting eviction from their homes that would be turned into student housing after they left.
I took photos of the residents and created the graphics in the web story.
Fall 2018 project: Student Elections Guide was more than a voting manual. We looked into how accountable USC’s student government is, from the president’s murky financial ties to conservative group Turning Point USA to how much USC pays its student leaders.
I oversaw all stories from the pitching process to publication.
I write a biweekly column analyzing the latest technology & digital news and how it affects news consumers:
March 27, 2018: USC must work to protect cyber security
March 20, 2018: Facebook irresponsibly puts personal data at risk
February 6, 2018: Purchased followers compromise journalistic integrity
