NASSAU, The Bahamas – It was the devastating story heard around the world; how Hurricane Dorian ripped through the northern most islands of The Bahamas, Grand Bahama and Abaco.
Self-proclaimed “cub reporter”Jasper Ward, my colleague at The Nassau Guardian, explained what it was like to cover the aftermath of Dorian and tell the stories of survival and loss as she was wrapping up her first year at the paper.

Ward was eager to speak on her time covering the aftermath and how she’s feeling not just as a journalist, but as a Bahamian, two months after surviving the most powerful hurricane to ever hit the Bahamas.
