Congrats to Media Studies/journalism student Amy Russo!

Congrats to Media Studies/journalism student Amy Russo on her selection as the first Pulitzer Center fellow from Hunter College!

Amy will receive a $3,000 fellowship to report on refugee children in Sweden. More than 35,000 unaccompanied minors from Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan are now living in Sweden, straining resources and creating unprecedented demands on youth shelters and counseling services. Amy will report and write an online story and produce an audio slide show that will be published by the Pulitzer Center upon her return. She will also attend a fellows weekend in the fall in Washington DC to meet other fellows and professional journalists.
