ne of our reporters, Anuz Thapa, documented the trip through a video blog. Thapa is from Nepal and formerly worked as a television anchor and program producer.
“I love making videos. I started vlogging in January 2017. When I became the social media co-editor for our trip to Israel, I pitched the idea of vlogging every day using my iPhone. I wasn’t sure if I’d be able to pull it off but I thought it would give the audience a better sense of what our reporting trip was all about: Understanding the complex narratives of Israel and the West Bank, finding and reporting stories as foreign correspondents in a new environment, and of course, a little fun as well. I’m happy that I could share our experience through my vlogs — even though I sometimes irritated my colleagues by shooting them constantly!”
