Highkey: I'm an award-winning, multi-hyphenate creative working across mediums to tell stories that matter.
Lowkey: I'm just another Black girl from the southside of Chicago, trying to make the city that raised me proud.
Spotlight | City Bureau
I've checked all the big name, legacy boxes. But THIS is one of my favorite orgs in journalism. A literal model for civic media everywhere...
I've worked with City Bureau since 2017. I heard about one open house while attending Medill, and now I can't stop showing up! I've done all three of CB's flagship programs (Documenters, Public Newsroom & Civic Media Fellowship). And I continue to find ways to stay engaged and support them.
Check out this video where they talk about their work (& document some of mine)... It's from the article "The Documenters model: How City Bureau makes information accessible to all".
