Medellín, Medellin, Antioquia, Colombia
Hi, I’m Megan Janetsky, a Medellín, Colombia-based reporter and photographer with a passion for enterprise, political and immigration storytelling. Currently, I work as a freelance journalist, covering issues facing the country for Colombia Reports.
En Colombia, espero contar las historias que otros periodistas y periódicos no cuentan.
Previously, I've covered everything from the U.S.-Mexico border to dark money flooding into Washington D.C. under the Trump administration.
My work has been featured by BBC World Service, C-SPAN, Huffington Post, USA Today, ThinkProgress, POLITICO, TruthOut, Refinery29, Arizona Center for Investigative Reporting, OpenSecrets.org, The Arizona Republic, The Detroit Free Press and various outlets throughout the United States.
Also, I'm a big fan of Gilmore Girls and bougie cheese.

Low priced corn flooded into Mexico when NAFTA was implemented in 1994, decimating the livelihoods of small farmers. Today, as NAFTA negotiations begin and U.S.-Mexico relations remain tense, Mexicans work to take back their crop.
