Megan Dombroski: writer, photographer

I’m a senior mass communication student with concentration in journalism and minor and health and wellness promotion. I was on The Blue Banner, UNC Asheville’s student newspaper, for five semesters. While on the paper, I was a staff photographer, photography editor, campus voice editor, and distribution manager. Currently, I’m working with Mountain Xpress, as a freelance writer and guest blogger for their wellness news section.

Along with working on this documentary, I’ll be writing a seven piece series of articles looking closely at issues surrounding hunger in Western North Carolina for my senior capstone public affairs journalism class. I am excited to combine my passions of writing, photography, and health promotion to work on this documentary.
