Caster Semenya is a South African runner who has been banned by the IAAF from competing with women because she was found to be hyperandrogenic, meaning she has a higher level of testosterone.

“Tiff Talks: An Afternoon with Brick Distributor” is a podcast about a recent music event in Brooklyn that my friend’s band, Brick Distributor, performed at. My mentor played a huge role in the inspiration for this project, as her studies of journalism and communications inspired me to pursue my own project (and soon major) in journalism. This represents my best work in the program this year because it combines everything I learned about writing at Girls Write Now for the past four years.

What was once the largest landfill in the world before closing in 2001 happens to be within my hometown and community of Staten Island. Since then, the landscape has been engineered to become the largest park in New York City. This landfill has greatly affected the health of those in my community. By conducting research to better understand the effects of the landfill on the climate and public health, I realized how my interests can merge and benefit public knowledge of this space. To have my voice heard beyond what can be accomplished in a social media post, I decided to write a script and assemble audio to create a podcast. Through this podcast, others can learn about benefits and concerns relating to the parks department-led engineering project.
