'First Days in America'
We are finding, coaching and training public media’s next generation. This #nextgenradio project is created with partner station WHYY Philadelphia, where five talented student journalists are participating in a week-long state-of-the-art training program.
In this project, five immigrants talk about how their first days in America shaped their lives today.
