Hunter’s Pulitzer Fellow Publishes Story

Overseas reporting by Hunter College media studies student Kadia Goba has resulted in publication with the award-winning Pacific Standard. Goba traveled to Sierra Leone last summer on a Hunter College international reporting fellowship, thanks to the Pulitzer Center for Crisis Reporting. She covered environmental challenges related to a deadly 2017 mudslide that killed more than 1,000 people.

Her resulting story, published on Pacific Standard’s web site on Oct. 12, focused on a new initiative to close the gender cap in the workplace while helping a rebuilding project. A version of the story was also published on the Pulitzer Center web site, and received a mention in the widely distributed newsletter of Global Health Now of the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.
