Student journalists recognized for standout storytelling

Five Northeastern students were honored this month by the National Academy of Arts & Sciences. The Academy recognized three students with college/university awards for excellence and two others received honorable mention. The student’s video stories, which we share below, provide a compelling look at unsolved Boston’s inner city neighborhoods, Kundalini Yoga and it’s healing power, and the Boston Police Department’s peace walks through city neighborhoods.

See who won and watch their stories.


Aren LeBrun, AMD’17, a media and screen studies and journalism combined major, won the “Short Form – Non-Fiction” category for the second year in a row. He produced a story for the Homicide Watch Boston website about the hundreds of unsolved murders in Boston’s inner-city neighborhoods.



Journalism majors Natasha Chang and Rachel Petri, both AMD’17, won in the “Arts and Entertainment/Cultural Affairs” category for a story they produced about kundalini yoga and its healing power.
