Readers with global ties

“Global Press Journal’s stories from Chiapas have transformed my way of thinking.”

Emelda, a Global Press Journal reader in El Paso, Texas grew up in the United States, but her family is from Mexico City. “I always had a very negative view on the southern part of Mexico,” she says. “I've been following the coverage of Chiapas for more than a decade. And now I understand the context of the region. I’m a school teacher now, and Global Press Journal stories help ensure that the next generation doesn't develop the stereotypes I did.”
