Naomi Harward is a photographer at heart, but is learning how to write stories and shoot video just like the rest of the Cedarville journalism students.

Naomi was part of a intensive two-week program called Storytellers Abroad with the mission agency ABWE (Association of Baptists for World Evangelism). She went to Nicaragua and learned more about how to tell a compelling story.

Watch the story she produced.
