UPROOTED

Uprooted is a multimedia project to document the Venezuelan migration crisis at Colombia after the fall of Venezuela’s economy. The project is created by a team of students of the Journalism school at UNC-Chapel Hill, and it’s a finalist for the David Teeuwen Student Journalism Award.

 
“Once considered the wealthiest country in Latin America, Venezuela now faces a severe economic and political crisis under the contested leadership of Nicolás Maduro. The crisis has caused millions of Venezuelans and their families to flee to Colombia in search of better lives.”

During the spring break of my senior year at UNC-Chapel Hill, I flew to Colombia with my classmates to work on a class project, “Uprooted,” a multimedia reporting project that aims to capture the situations of Venezuelan migrants at Colombia. As one of the eight designers that helped with the interactive elements of the project, I created an informative motion graphic to help explain the history behind the crisis, and worked with my teammates Sally Dillon and Carlos Salas on interactive pieces for documentation and health care in Colombia.
