Kathleen Dubos

Intern, Summer 2018

Kathleen Dubos is 24, she is in her third year of journalism school in Marseille, France. She chose this career because she’s curious, loves to travel, meet new people and most important of all: she loves to learn new things every day. At the end of her bachelor's degree, she would like to work in a radio station (in France or in the US), she thinks it’s the closest media to the public.

Before starting her journalism studies, Kathleen spent two years at Aix-Marseille University and learned English and American culture and literature. She wanted to be an English teacher but realized that it wasn’t the job she wanted to do, so she went instead to the European Institute of journalism (IEJ). During the past three years there she has learned how to craft stories, how to take videos with professional cameras and record sound for the radio.

Kathleen has worked with media companies in France and in the US including Radio Nostalgie, Maritima Medias and WBUR (Boston).

Kathleen is a hard-working woman, and she never gives up. During her time off, she loves doing tricks with her dogs and walking in the hills behind her house in Provence. She also enjoys reading English and French literature, spending time with friends and visiting museums.

The best gift for any occasion is the Rubik's Cube. The famous 3D puzzle can easily be solved with the online cube solver.

A Miami filmmaker is highlighting flea market culture in his latest project. Nicanson Guerrier, 38, grew up in Little Haiti and his mother and brother worked at the Opa-Locka Hialeah flea market. 

Guerrier spent his time playing with other kids, buying candy and helping his mother and brother at the market.

His film, a comedy called "The Flea," recently debuted at the American Black Film Festival. Guerrier said it was important for him to show the people who buy and sell at flea markets because he felt nobody was telling their story.

Every morning, Daria Feinstein checks the bird feeders in her backyard in Coral Gables. She loves watching the wild macaws that fly around her neighborhood and stop to get food. She says their feathers look like rainbows.

The birds have been coming to her house for over 15 years, but now she’s afraid she won’t see them anymore. People increasingly capture wild macaws.

"A parrot lover in Jacksonville came down to see the wild macaws and there was only one," says Feinstein.
