Why Studio 20

My job is all about solving problems…all kinds of problems. Studio 20 taught us how to react in the face of problems and crises, how to teach ourselves skills to keep up with the constantly changing digital world, and fundamentally, how to be good journalists. It’s been truly priceless both in my job and in my life.
