I recorded my first-ever podcast during my summer 2018 internship at Bloomberg Law. To find out how Trump's tariff actions could affect U.S. workers, I spoke with Celeste Drake, a trade and globalization specialist at AFL-CIO, and William Hoagland, senior vice president at the Bipartisan Policy Center.
In summer 2018, I was selected to participate in AAJA Voices, the Asian American Journalists Association's mentorship program that ran from May to August 2018. I, together with Cassandra Hsiao, Claire Tran and Amber Ly, reported on refugees' coping mechanisms in facing stress and trauma — we interviewed refugees from Sudan, Syria, Burundi, Vietnam and Cambodia. The project includes one main article, five profiles, two videos and one package of data visualization. I presented the project with my team at the AAJA National Convention in Houston on August 10, 2018. The presentation was live-recorded, and the recording can be found below.

At first glance, Abir Aljrafii, 43, seems like any other mother. She makes snacks for her four kids, takes care of the family’s six canaries, and cheers for her kids at their kickboxing competitions.

The presentation was live-recorded on Facebook, from 50:42 to 1:07:00.
In fall 2017 I interned for WBUR, where I wrote news scripts under deadline. This spot recording below was my final work at the end of my internship.
During my summer 2017 internship at Voice of America, I also shot and edited videos. They were in both English and Indonesian and were meant for social media, as displayed below.
I've made several videos for my visual and online journalism classes.
