In December 2016, a group of multimedia journalists from the University of Oregon spent two weeks living with families in rural Sri Lanka. The resulting stories, videos, and photographs explore the nation's communities, struggles, and resilience. I contributed two written stories and one video to the project, as well as serving as copy editor for all the stories and website copy. The project won 2nd place in Multimedia Team Reporting from the 2017 Hearst Journalism Awards.
