DescriptionIn 2005 three friends on their way to becoming freshly anointed college grads had an idea. They were budding journalists with global ambitions who didn’t want to sit on their hands while foreign coverage in American newspapers continued to fade. The three Sarah Stuteville Alex Stonehill and Jessica Partnow decided to take a trip to about a dozen countries in Southeast Asia and the Middle East in 2006. The trip was funded through personal savings and credit cards—perhaps a parent’s worst nightware but it ended up being a long-term investment in their future reporting careers.
