Shining a light on the Dominicans who are making an impact on and for our community -- from Florida to Portland and all points in between.
(Episode 12) - As we begin to wind down 2019, we're pleased to have a chance to sit down with renaissance journalist and media advocate Claudia Cruz, Director of Internships and Experiential Learning at the Reynolds School of Journalism at the University of Nevada, Reno.
We talk to Claudia about her bicoastal journey working as a community and digital storyteller, the challenge and responsibility of connecting with first-generation Latinx students and the important role non-traditional media is having in keeping local journalism alive.
And that's just the first half-hour.
