This article was one of my firsts in the journalism program. I decided to go the extra mile and search through articles that chronicled the spending habits of large organizations for natural disasters, and then try contacting the authors of whichever peer-reviewed article I felt was most informed.

Granted, rereading it now, I'm still seeing some grammatical errors in it, which is frustrating. But this was the first time I had my own photos published.
