The Dow Jones News Fund chose five college students to receive free registrations to attend the Asian American Journalists Association convention through its Emerging Journalists Program.

The aim is to offer opportunities for diverse students whether at universities or community colleges to build their skills and professional networks at these important gatherings.

Attendees will write and tweet about their experiences at the conferences.

Here are the students attending #AAJA20 (starting from the bottom):
Kala Herh, New York University
Stephanie Lai, Columbia University
Sophia Wang, New York University
Ted Ravago, New York University
