Six SFSU Students Selected for Fukushima Storytelling Project

June 4, 2014

The Dilena Takeyama Center has selected six top San Francisco State University students for an ambitious storytelling project designed to capture the experiences of residents in Fukushima who remain displaced after the massive disaster that struck northeastern Japan in 2011.
The students are Guadalupe Gonzalez, Gavin McIntyre, Lorisa Salvatin, Debbie Svoboda and Natalie Yemenidjian, all associated with the Journalism Department, and Corrine Morier, from the Japanese Language & Literature Program.
The team will be led by Jon Funabiki, a professor of journalism and executive director of the Dilena Takeyama Center, and Sachi Cunningham, an assistant professor of journalism. Also joining the project is Allison Budner of KALW Public Radio, who will be producing stories for her station.
