My name is Kari Lindberg, a freelance journalist. My ability to make news easily understandable to a general audience, by humanizing it, demonstrates my versatility as a journalist. When writing the articles, “Equality for East Flatbush-#NoEvictionZone Video Pledges” and “Rezoning Plea is Redoubled as Chinatown Feels the Heat” I utilized my investigative reporting, data analysis, and financial literacy skills to draw connections between inflated rent costs, area specific minority losses, and the relationship between NYC policies and the continued rise of gentrification. In these articles I used statistics to enhance and establish historical background, drawing attention between the intersectionality between politics, and finances .
My reporting skills are fully supported by my background in international journalism. Having experienced journalism on two different continents, North America and Asia, by writing for the Asian American Writers’ Workshop, Shanghai Expat Magazine, and The Ubyssey I gained the ability to present news to both a Chinese and North American audience. My background in international relations and economics, will equip me with the needed skill set to understand the turbulent financial sector as it unfolds. Knowing Mandarin Chinese and Spanish will allow me to pull information on occurring situations, not limited to information provided in English, enabling me to analyze and break down minute-by-minute financial, political, and social occurrences in a robust manner.
