Intern Spotlight: Stela Khury scores at the Sacramento Bee
She showed her chops covering reactions to the United States Supreme Court decision which makes same-sex marriage legal across the 50 states. She explained the difficulties a non-profit in Sacramento whose mission is to promote Brazilian culture to fundraise and renovate their center. She highlighted the efforts of Native American men want to leave behind a life of alcoholism and abuse to become better fathers. And, she also took us in the mind of a Sacramento teen cast to play the voice of the little girl Riley in this summer’s blockbuster from Pixar Inside Out.
Khury recieved a $1,500 grant from the NAHJ Bay Area chapter to help cover some of the cost associated with an internship at the Sacramento Bee. The funds were received as a grant from PG&E.
“Thank you again for the Bay Area NAHJ’s support,” Khury shared on the chapter’s Facebook page. “I’m doing my best to repay your kindness with good reporting!”
