Ameena Rasheed is from Texas Southern University. During her time at WWFF11 she shot several videos of the students and shelter residents.
During the 2011 Labor Day weekend, 20 student journalists from across the country got together and took over a Florida homeless shelter’s newspaper.
One student even came from as far away as Alaska to be apart of the third annual “Will Write For Food” program which is sponsored by the South Florida Society of Professional Journalists, SPJ region 3 and the Florida College Press Association.
While at the homeless shelter the students had some encounters that hit close to home. These are some of their stories.
