New Student Photo Series 2013 – Post 4

Rosalind Adams will be a dual degree MIA and MS in Journalism candidate at Columbia University. 

I recently left my job in the U.N. press corps to spend the summer in Santiago writing for a local English newspaper, freelancing and studying Spanish. I’m covering the presidential election and the student protests here and things are really starting to build.

These pictures were taken from the student protest on June 20, 2013 in Santiago, Chile.
