I am happy to say, I have been chosen as a Fellow! So I will be headed to Hyderabad in July. Really thrilled for this opportunity. When I say I would not be here without your influence, I mean it. The Morocco program really pushed me out of my comfort zone in the best way and made me realize how important it is to empower young storytellers and local journalists, which is what I’ll be doing with this fellowship. And without that clip, I wouldn’t have made it to the Monitor, which has opened up so many possibilities. I can’t thank you enough!
