Natalie M. Hutchison is a reporter with a fervor for hidden ways of life and the individuals that define them. She holds her M.A. in Journalism and Public Affairs with an international specialty from American University in Washington D, and a B.A. in Communication Studies from CSU Stanislaus. Her most recent work includes writing and radio features published in her role as a media producer at the United Nations headquarters in New York, during which she has reported on feminism across the globe, the world’s worst humanitarian crises, and sociopolitical affairs. She is the recipient of the award granted by Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting for international reporting, a grant she used to produce a short documentary film in the eastern pocket of the Peruvian rainforest on religion and climate change. Adequate coverage doesn’t stop at getting both sides of the story, but all sides of the story. When caught in conundrums she asks “how” rather than “why” and will exhaust her resourcefulness to seal a production.
Having lived in a third world country and been exposed to numerous countries and cultures, she is keen in adaptation and culturally sensitive. Much of her approach to life today can be attributed to such experiences and journeys around the globe that have defined her as well-traveled and understanding of multiple perspectives. Having been exposed to people in an array of places and contexts, she is optimistic about the potential for which they have to exist harmoniously, and is determined to bring to surface inarguable universals that persist across the human race.
