"Venezuelan children head back to school amid dire shortages" for The Washington Post by Andrea Hernandez

Happy that Arantxa, Gabriel and Jospeh’s story in on The Washington Post today. Against all odds, their parents still manage to take them every day to school so that they can get an education. They are unsung heroes in this crisis. 
Venezuelan children returned to half-empty classrooms this fall as schools struggled with budget and teacher shortfalls, and parents scrambled to pay for food, let alone new uniforms and notebooks.

I’m grateful for the opportunity to tell it.

"Born in Exile" for Buzzfeed News by Andrea Hernandez

Working with Karla Zabludovsky, the Mexico Bureau Chief and Latin America correspondent, in this story was a privilege because she felt deeply for my countrymen and women. We cursed and cried together when we heard what Caro Rivero had to say and saw what she had to show. She is a mother of a child with no country, but she and her partner Eduardo Hernandez will work tirelessly for their child’s future in a land where they are foreigners. 
The light cheers up everything it touches. And even though Caro’s circumstances may not change in a while, I hope that people understand what is happening to Venezuela and Venezuelans.
Thanks to Kate Bubacz, Deputy Photo Director, for trusting me with this very important story and for a beautiful edit.
