Students from The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Journalism and Mass Communications teamed with journalism students at Tec de Monterrey in Mexico City to create a visual story of life in Mexico City through video and photographs. It is captivating, real, and human. It expresses the range of frustrations, challenges, misery, joy and hopefulness of life.
Experience ‘Reframing Mexico’
One of the pleasures of working at an extraordinary university like UNC is the commitment that faculty and students have to social justice, innovation, and collaboration. This is manifested through volunteerism and active engagement that is designed to instill in people how important it is to make a difference in the world. Reframing Mexico heightens our awareness for and appreciation of what it takes to survive and thrive for our southern neighbor.
As I approach the national holiday of Thanksgiving in the United States, I am grateful for my family and friends, for the food I grow and eat and recycle, and for opportunities in my life. I am also grateful to the Mexican migrants in the U.S. who I don’t know, and my Mexican friends and family in Oaxaca, who all add to the quality of my life.
