Reporting with Real Impact

Her reporting sparked renewed awareness and propelled funding sources to the school.

Corps members Brandon Pho, Hosam Elattar and Noah Biesiada at Voice of OC have spent months covering developments in Anaheim, California, a city turned upside down by an FBI public corruption probe. The corps members’ continued reporting has led Anaheim City Council to push the city’s mayor to resign and community members to demand answers.
