We are a group of student videographers and photographers, web designers and developers, reporters and faculty brought together by a common goal: to share the voices of Puerto Ricans living in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria. We hope the stories of how they are coping and rebuilding can serve as lessons for future natural disasters.
We also wish to inform our audience about Puerto Rico's recovery and encourage more people to get involved and join the conversation.
We are a part of an annual project by UNC-Chapel Hill’s School of Media and Journalism. In past projects, students have reported across five continents and produced award-winning multimedia work. As students, we’re learning the rewards and challenges of reporting on different cultures; as journalists, we are working as a team to tell the stories that are shaping the globe.
