For this project, I worked with a newsroom of other students in cooperation with NBCWashington.com in order to create a multimedia online project that explored the incredibly complex issue of freedom of expression and creating safer spaces on college campuses.

My story aimed to show the reality of students living college lives who were involved in the discussion. I spent weeks with three separate students all on different sides of the debate with different backgrounds and identities. Through their three voices, I explored the sheer complexity of the issue as well as how background and personal experience can shape discourse.

I also acted as the web director for the project, designing and creating the site via WordPress platform.
