UW-Madison Senior Audrey Thibert joined over 40 other Pulitzer Center Reporting Fellows in Washington, D.C. for the Pulitzer Center’s 9th annual Washington Weekend. The three days of learning and community building centered around the work of Reporting Fellows from across the United States reporting on issues from global health and climate change to gender and LGBTQ+ equality. Audrey presented her project “A Shared Uncertainty: Migration Stories from Tunisia” and took questions from the audience at a Saturday afternoon panel on Peace and Conflict.

Audrey’s attendance and participation at Washington Weekend provided far more than just the opportunity to present her research. As she noted, “Washington Weekend was a formative experience for me as a journalist and as a person,” adding that “the most valuable part of the weekend was bonding with the other professional and student journalists and hearing them speak about their work. It was inspiring to see how passionate the fellows were about their own projects, but also how deeply engaged we were with each other’s work. I walked away knowing I had found a strong community of young journalists who, like me, are eager to report on important topics. It was refreshing to be surrounded by this tangible enthusiasm and support.”
