Bridgette Adu-Wadier, editor of T.C. Williams High School’s Theogony student newspaper, has selected by PBS as one of the nation’s top 20-Under-20 up and coming storytellers.
In addition to acting as editor for the school’s paper, Adu-Wadier has written about racial inequalities in the school and other controversies at the school. Adu-Wadier also produces and moderates a series of panels with local journalists called Behind the Headlines.
Abu-Wadier’s efforts were recognized by PBS in the new 20-Under-20 series, started this year, which focuses on young journalists and young storytellers.
According to PBS:
Bridgette Adu-Wadier is a senior at T.C. Williams High School in Alexandria, Virginia. Her love for books and storytelling drew her to journalism, creating an opportunity to continue exploring the power of local politics and underrepresented voices. Next fall, she will pursue broadcast journalism and social science research at Northwestern University. She dreams of becoming an investigative journalist reporting on education. She is an editor for her school newspaper, host and co-founder of the local news discussion show at her school and a reporter for several other publications. Bridgette has also helped produce several stories for SRL, as well as interviewed the NewsHour’s Judy Woodruff on preparing for presidential debates.
