In this episode of our “Inside the Writer’s Head” podcast, Dani McClain speaks with Streetvibes editor Gabriela Godinez Feregrino. They discuss street papers and their role in engaging people experiencing homelessness, community and social justice writing, and more.
Gabriela graduated from Ohio University in May of 2018 with a communications degree in media. In school, she studied media production with an emphasis on social change, and also finished a minor in English. She worked at the Ohio University LGBT Center where she found her love for working with, and for, the community around her.
Her previous employment taught her how to speak on panels, teach advocacy, and be a grassroots organizer. She knows the importance of advocacy and hopes to spend her life working in this field. She always has been a writer and she was incredibly excited when she found out that Streetvibes was hiring a new editor – and jumped at the opportunity. She feels it’s a privilege to work for this newspaper as well as an incredible responsibility. She hopes to showcase as many voices from the community as she possibly can.
