I’m a journalist and I report and tell stories with words, audio, multimedia and social media, as well as with digital, emerging and unexpected platforms — from chat bots and text messages to disposable cameras and diary entries.
I tell human stories that help us understand gender, power, and politics around the world.
I’m the author of GIRLHOOD, a book documenting the lives of teenage girls around the world for Algonquin Books, out February 2021. The book is based on a newsletter and series that I wrote for The Washington Post’s The Lily.
