Welcome our new journalism fellow, Mirkica Popovik.
We have an exciting addition to our staff, and she’ll be breaking grounds for the city of Chicago.
Our new fellow, Mirkica Popovik, will be covering Chicago’s media sites as a part of the Macedonian Media Leaders Program. The program, which started last year, is meant to “help strengthen the media sector in Macedonia through the professional development of journalists,” as it says on the IREX website.
It’s a program organized by the US Embassy in Skopje, the capital of Macedonia, and IREX, a nonprofit organization in Washington, D.C.
