SMHS Student Reporting Lab Team Video on PBS News Hour

Abhaya Krishnan Jha

The San Mateo High School Student Reporting Lab Team produced their fourth video for PBS News Hour on Abhaya Krishnan-Jha, a Junior at San Mateo High School, documenting her experience as the child of immigrants finding balance between her Indian and American identities as an Indian American young woman. This video has received such incredible response that it has won pride of place and appears first on the PBS New Americans site.
