The Pulitzer Center gave me the chance to do on the ground reporting in the Lebanon, with financial support and personal mentorship. I attended two conferences in DC, one in June and one in September, where I connected with other student fellows and learned about opportunities in journalism. I loved that I had the space to consider how writing can be a force for good.
What I wish was different
I wouldn't change anything.
I was rejected twice by the Pulitzer Center before receiving this fellowship. I would advise anyone who is interested to apply and if not accepted, try again!
