Knight-Wallace journalism fellow Jennifer Guerra will talk about her work on State of Opportunity, a five-year reporting project that looked at kids from low-income families and what it takes to get them ahead. She'll also dive into what makes a good audio story and offer tips for those who might be interested in doing some of their own recordings. Jennifer studies public media and its role in fostering civil discourse. She is a senior reporter at Michigan Radio covering education and inequality. She has a degree in English from UM and a master's from Fordham in Communication and Media Studies. Her radio features and documentaries have won numerous regional and national awards, and her stories have aired on NPR's Morning Edition, All Things Considered, Marketplace and Studio 360.
