Young Journalist of the Year Awards
From the plight of child soldiers in northern Uganda to sex trafficking in Mexico City, Alexandra (@AlexLFisher) isn’t afraid to venture into the world’s darkest corners in search of a story. As a fresh-faced student she filmed her first story in Africa, later broadcast on national TV. She’s spent more than two years working at the ABC.
“Alexandra’s work stood out to all of us as exceptional, particularly her report on sex trafficking in Mexico, an issue that affects thousands of women every year. Her rapport with subjects was apparent throughout, bringing intimacy and power to an impressive body of work.”
