“Medill challenged me to dig deeper into who I am and how I see the world around me. Whether it’s the strong emphasis on fact-checking or approaching stories with more compassion, I’m grateful for the tools and education I gained during my time at Medill. We were constantly surrounded by fierce, caring, talented journalists and humanitarians fighting to make this world a better place by using the power of storytelling. While I may no longer be on campus, these values and more are with me everywhere I go.”
