Student journalist wins scholarship for work on HIV and sport

From the Bay Area Reporter, this news about the author of a series of articles we recently spoke of here, Hana Kajimura:

At the LGBT Media Summit, which precedes the convention [of the National Lesbian and Gay Journalists Association] on September 2, Hana Kajimura will be presented with the $2,500 Bob Ross Student Scholarship by the NLGJA northern California chapter. The scholarship is underwritten by the Bob Ross Foundation, which is overseen by Bay Area Reporter publisher Thomas E. Horn.

Kajimura went to high school in Palo Alto and will be attending Stanford University this fall. According to the selection committee, her essay created a narrative that tied the pieces she wrote (about gender inequality in the locker room and a series she did about athletes living with HIV) to broader issues around equality.
