The Journey: From the Third World to Middle America (Pt I)
Part one of “The Journey: From the Third World to Middle America” by KVSC News Director Chris Duffy takes a look at the Somali population in St. Cloud, Minn., which has swelled from just a handful to an estimated six to seven thousand. They come to the United States from their war-torn country in search of a better life, but when they get here they quickly find being a stranger in a new land comes with a whole new basket of challenges.
In this feature, KVSC News Director Chris Duffy explores the struggles Somali refugees face with things like finding jobs and learning English… but also tells stories of Somalis who have found success in America. Duffy is receiving his Master of Science degree in Mass Communications this week and spent his entire spring semester producing what he considers his "signature piece" from his time as News Director.
