Come talk to the first ever New York Times Disability Fellow on what it’s like to report on COVID-19 from a disability angle, her experience in her role, and what it’s like being a disabled reporter.
Amanda Morris is a 2021-2022 disability reporting fellow for the New York Times National desk.
A graduate of New York University, she most recently worked at The Arizona Republic as a multimedia bioscience reporter. She has also reported in North Carolina, covering politics for The Associated Press, and has worked at NPR, CNN and The Hartford Courant.
As someone with hearing loss, Ms. Morris grew up regularly using American Sign Language with her two deaf parents. Her fellowship is in partnership with the National Center on Disability and Journalism at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism at Arizona State University.
Hosted by the Disabled Journalists Association, Berkeley Chapter. Moderated by Julia Métraux (’23).
