Hi! I’m a visual communication MA student. Before coming to UNC, I spent six years in southern Africa, Mexico and Peru working in public health, education, and policy helping me to bridge the gap between working with people and being behind the camera.
Hello everyone! I am a multi-platform investigative reporter, who has reported for the Asheville Citizen-Times, Our Chatham, UNC FactCheck, Lead Stories and the NBC News investigative unit. When I'm not working on stories, you can catch me playing the clarinet in UNC's wind ensemble and pep band.
Hi, I'm Haley! I'm a photo and video storyteller at UNC-Chapel Hill with a minor in social and economic justice. When I'm not taking pictures for school or work, I'm busy adding to my sky-appreciation Instagram.

My name is Jeremiah and my pronouns are he/him/his! I am a documentary filmmaker and senior at UNC Chapel Hill, majoring in photo and video journalism. Not to flex, but Michael said that I would probably win Survivor if I were on it, so that's pretty dope.
Kate Sheppard is a Teaching Associate Professor in the School of Journalism and Media and a faculty fellow for the Reese Innovation Lab. She is a senior enterprise editor at HuffPost, leading the environment and economy teams.
I am a sophomore photo and video journalist from a small Appalachian Mountain town. I found my passion for visual storytelling at 8 years old when I found my mom’s old camcorder hidden in the closet.
Hola, yo soy Lucia! I'm an international student from Argentina studying journalism at UNC-Chapel Hill this semester. If you hear someone talking in a weird accent, that's probably me. And no matter how hard I try, I can't pronounce the word "literally" in English.
I am a documentary filmmaker and photographer in my senior year at UNC-Chapel Hill. I half-way met Ellen Degeneres one time.
Hello! I'm a documentary filmmaker and photographer from Asheville, North Carolina. I'm fascinated by the ways that food can tell us more about who we are as humans, and I want to translate that passion into my documentary projects. This team was incredible and I can only hope future projects will be as good.
I’m a professor and Director of Documentary Projects for the Hussman School. Barriers is the 11th international project I’ve led, and each one is my favorite. Experiential project-based teaching is my passion.
Hi! I'm Sarah Redmond. I'm a videographer and senior at UNC-Chapel Hill studying photo & video journalism and studio art. I enjoy swimming, refining my Spotify playlists, and can often be found with a McDonald's Coke in my hand.
I'm Tamara, the interactive coach for Barriers. I love finding ways to tell stories in visual and interactive ways, and I'm always inspired by the energy and commitment my students bring to their work.
My name is Taylor Tyson. I am a senior at UNC studying interactive multimedia. I am on the Motion Graphics/ Data Visualization team. For my fun fact, when I was in elementary school, I played bass clarinet in front of the Capitol Building.
