I’ve been keeping pretty busy since the last update on here. In addition to freelancing for City Bureau and Chicago Magazine, I’ve helped launch 90 Days, 90 Voices with two other City Bureau alums. The pro-bono journalism project aims to tell the stories of those seeking a home in the United States who are impacted by President Donald Trump’s executive orders immigration.  If you have a moment check out the stories we’ve posted so far and definitely reach out to us if you want to contribute or partner with us in some way. Ω
