Analucy Benavides

University of Maryland, USA

My name is Analucy Benavides. I am Salvadoran-American. I am a third year undergraduate student at the University of Maryland. I am studying Government and Politics with a focus on Latin American countries. I have always had an interest for journalism and after taking a college course I decided I wanted to learn more and become more involved. I am fluent in Spanish and proficient in the French language and I would like to see first-hand how journalism differs throughout the world. I have seen how power and politics affects journalism and journalist in Latin American countries and would like see the dynamics between journalism and politics in other parts of the world.
