WJI Alumnus Testimony- Onize Ohikere

Feb 24, 2018

The following is a testimony from WJI Alumnus Onize Ohikere.

WJI’s two week summer course sparked my deeper appreciation for journalism. I listened to first-hand accounts from journalists who worked from Sudan to Washington D.C. I interacted with students from different universities and backgrounds, and we shared ideas and goals. As I now work on some magazine stories for WORLD, I still go over the checklist I made after listening to international reporters during WJI. I keep in mind I'm not just writing to meet a quota, but witnessing and retelling other people's realities. 

Here are links to some of his WORLD Stories
