A student journalist at Bowdoin has been selected by ProPublica to take part in its Emerging Reporters program. The nonprofit news organization launched the program last year as a way to increase diversity in investigative journalism by giving stipends and mentoring help to college journalists of color.

Marina Affo ’17, who was born in Togo in West Africa, is one of five students selected as Emerging Reporters from across the nation. Affo, who is pursuing a double major in government and Legal Studies, and history, is a writer and editor for the Bowdoin Orient
