Name: Lauren Loftus, Ethics and Excellence in Journalism Foundation Fellow
School: Arizona State University
Style of reporting: Feature writing, in-depth and investigative, multimedia
Previous internship or work experience: Before going to graduate school, I worked a hodgepodge of writing jobs, including for a radio news wire service, a travel magazine, a start-up website and as the copywriter at a small university. I also backpacked solo across Central America and blogged about it.
Favorite reporting experience: Traveling two hours through a perilously foggy road to meet an indigenous midwife in Chiapas, Mexico, and watching as she correctly guessed the sex of an unborn baby just by touching her patient’s belly.

Favorite app: Google Maps because I’d be hopelessly lost without it.
