My thanks to the Riverfront Times for naming me best online reporter of 2014. Their write-up below:
It’s a bit limiting to pin down local writer Sarah Kendzior as simply being a “reporter.” Though she does longform, in-depth work, like her piece “The Fast-Food Worker Strikes Back” for Medium, she also wrote op-ed pieces for Al-Jazeera (before quitting the gig recently) and keeps the world on its toes 140 characters at a time on Twitter. With degrees in anthropology from Wash. U. and in Central Eurasian studies from Indiana University, Kendzior is one of the people to keep on your radar if you want to keep abreast of global politics. And in a rapidly changing city like St. Louis, her particular interests in gentrification, wage gaps and the up-and-coming millennial generation will give you a lot to chew on.
