Being a journalist of color can be pretty lonely.
Among the hustle and bustle of everyday work schedules, some of us often forget to take care of ourselves.
UNITY: Journalists for Diversity is pleased to announce Ala’a Ibrahim has been named the UNITY 2017 reporting fellow. Ibrahim, who is studying multimedia journalism and business at the University of Texas at Austin, was chosen out of a group of highly qualified and dedicated young journalists from across the country. She will represent UNITY at five annual conferences focused on diversifying newsrooms and the stories they tell.
The fellowship is designed to simulate convergence journalism, technology and cross-cultural communications. It will also provide recipients a chance to apply for positions and internships at some of the country’s best represented job fairs.
