Ronald's experience from this fellowship has changed his perspective on journalism. He previously thought journalism was about justice and justice stories and has been surprised to find that it’s deeper than that, he realized data journalism is about telling a story through numbers, in everyday language for people concerned to derive meaning.
Fellow's data story:
The ADH fellowship experience has exposed Victoria to data visualisation, infographics, and maps in her story telling. Her experience with journalism has mostly been in television and radio broadcast, this is her first in depth community investigation story that she plans to publish using multimedia. She has enjoyed the visualisation support from the Orodata Science team as well as the focus on data as an element of the story telling. She has found the journey exciting.
