About Emily Campion


Emily Campion delayed her graduation until August, when she’ll receive a bachelor’s degree in journalism, so she could join the class. In December and January, she worked with a non-governmental organization in Rwanda. The experience inspired her to return to Africa to focus on the relationships between local citizens and foreign-funded organizations working on development.

“Reporters working in situations as vulnerable as HIV/AIDs should have a clear understanding of their role in providing a safe space for people to share their views and their personal experiences,” she said.

Her reporting partner was Eric Kiptoo.
