RVI Fellows Recommend: Ani Sandu


“For me, the RVI fellowship brought the last chance in this pandemic year to travel internationally and meet fellow professionals from other countries. If there’s something I’ve learned in this pandemic, it is how valuable getting together and sharing ideas. Journalistically, it gave me the time and resources to document an in-depth story, which is not a small thing. In tough times, I think these kind of stories can help people navigate through the problems they face and understand the world better.”
