SOC Documents March for Science
Last year, more than 20 SOC graduate students, alumni, and professors documented the March for Science in Washington, DC, under the direction of film professor Larry Kirkman. In addition to this piece, which they produced, their footage has been used by AAAS, other organizations, and networks to raise awareness of the importance of science to the well-being of society. SOC teams return to film this year's march on Saturday, April 14.

There are a lot more opportunities out there to create something that matters.
Nesima Aberra loves storytelling, but believes we need to expand where and how stories are told and who tells them. At AU, she explored how media shapes the way we understand our world through innovative, thoughtful, and relevant stories. Through her Dean's Internship at VOX, she's learned how to find compelling human interest angles in more complex news events. Now she's more excited than ever to use literary journalism to change the way people think and feel and help make our society more informed and empowered.
