This story was partly funded by the Journalism Center on Children and Families and tells the story of Fulton—a western Kentucky town where there are few jobs and other limited resources.
Talking to the people in Fulton stretched me as a journalist. While at a food bank for this story, several people there were not happy I was covering the hardships they faced. I learned how to be kind and considerate while still making sure I got the information I needed to meet my deadline.
