In 2017, Channel 13 News in Albany, NY reported on a story that came out in the New York Times. In the reporting, the victim-blaming was rampant and inappropriate. I analyzed the transcripts an gave it a grade.
My research passions include the traumatic impact of media humiliation, misrepresentation, victim-blaming and public shaming. I'm also a trafficking survivor, humanitarian and activist seeking to empower the oppressed, promote post-traumatic growth, and enrich lives through the use of media, research, and story.
