I’m interested in exploring why and how the scope, power, and business of journalism is shrinking in a world where its need is even more pressing today. While the idea of the press as a fourth pillar of democracy is a great concept, grassroots journalism is dying at an alarming pace. I want to explore and research the nuances of why it’s on the decline, how it can combat dis/misinformation, and how we can (arguably) evolve the idea of press freedom.
In my spare time, or otherwise, I love watching/playing/reading all things football (soccer, fine). I support Manchester United FC and also happen to be an avid consumer of movies, stand-up comedy, music, fiction, beer, and all things nonsensical.
