My Life As: Former War Correspondent shares stories from the field

As the bulk of her college graduating class moved on to graduate schools or jobs somewhere in U.S., Ilana Ozernoy decided to go in a completely different direction. A direction that led her all the way to the Afghan outback.

Ozernoy, a new Assistant Professor in the School of Journalism, spoke about this experience and her decade as a war correspondent at the My Life As event in the SAC auditorium on Tuesday, Feb. 14, 2012.

Ozernoy said, “I’m really grateful that I had the opportunity to share my story. My story is unique to me. But I hope there are things embedded in my story that students will learn from or borrow from or will simply just think about.”
