While on co-op at the Fuller Project for International Reporting, international affairs major Audrey Pence experienced life as a freelance journalist. She learned more about the world, got an inside look at what it takes to build a nonprofit, and published a story on the front page of the CNN International website.

Ever since Audrey Pence arrived at Northeastern, she has been interested in learning more about the world. One mechanism she has used to get to know different people and places is journalism.
This past spring Pence, SSH’17, an international affairs major, worked on co-op at the Fuller Project for International Reporting, a nonprofit news organization based in Turkey that was founded earlier this year. While there, Pence wrote a number of stories, covering issues ranging from bride kidnapping to the 100th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide.
“I went out into the streets with a Turkish co-worker and got quotes from people for a story on the Armenian Genocide, and we got that published on CNN International’s website,” Pence explained. “That was one I got a shared byline on, which was really exciting.”
