My latest for Latin Pulse in this week’s newscast is my report from the release of a new book by Guillermo Valdes Castallanos, the former director of the Mexican intelligence agency (CISEN).

Organizing the event was Manuel Suarez-Mier, a former Mexican diplomat and my professor for “World Politics” at American University. Mexican Ambassador to the United States Eduardo Medina Mora was also there.

A few weeks ago I went to a Costa Rican presidential debate in San José. When I got back to the states, I wrote, recorded and edited my first international piece and my first piece for Latin Pulse I’ve done in months. It’s also the first time leading the weekly news program.

I also snagged a couple of photos of the candidates present.

This is an important report for me. Majoring in international studies was my way of preparing me for a life of international politics reporting. I’ve also invested myself in radio reporting with work at Latin Pulse as well as PBS MediaShift. The fact that this piece exemplifies both is particularly significant in my professional development.

Hopefully this is not the last.
