Morocco World News
During my semester study abroad program in Morocco titled "Field Studies in Journalism and New Media" I had the incredible opportunity of working at Morocco World News (MWN) as a news correspondent.
Reporting every day for the largest independent English-news organization in Morocco absolutely changed the way I view journalism. With MWN, I've written stories from cities across the country and have had to learn to work around the strict monarchy to produce credible journalism.
At MWN, I reported on a stories ranging from breaking-news to long-form features. During the two months, I covered teachers' protests, papal visits, presidential ceremonies, desert marathons and other incredible events.
