From the Classroom to the Newsroom: Hunter Senior Reports for the Gothamist

Senior Afia Eama made great use of her internship this spring at the Gothamist, where she has published 10 original articles on topics ranging from New York City’s vaccination rate to explaining the role of a public advocate in city politics to where to find the best elote (Jackson Heights!) 

Her deeply researched article on how each of the mayoral candidates would manage legalized marijuana in the city generated a robust online discussion in the comments, a marker of successful journalism in the digital age. 

Afia graduates this spring, and we’re excited to watch her trajectory continue to soar.
