Meet the Fellows: Danielle Mackey


My reporting partner, Danielle Mackey, has been working from El Salvador for more than a decade, making her an invaluable guide and companion for this trip. She says that she became a journalist because she wanted to spend her days reading, writing, listening and adventuring into people’s lives. She loves the way that writing makes her pay attention, question, and connect with people. Her current beat, security and development in Central America and the US, is a way to tell stories about these two regions that attempt to reveal that they are bound together in myriad ways.
