Teresa Tomassoni has been named the Stone & Holt Weeks Fellow.
She’ll do a stint at WaPo following by one at NPR.
The fellowship was created to commemorate the deaths of two brothers who were killed in a highway crash in July 2009. Tomassoni, a member of the 2010 J-School class of The City University of New York, has worked as a counselor for sex trafficking victims. “I chose to pursue journalism as a means to educate the public about complex social issues like human trafficking,” she explained to CUNY Newswire.
Tomassoni’s fellowship begins in the fall.
