In September 2016, I secured a prestigious Knight-Wallace Fellowship, followed by a fellowship at School of Environment at the University of Michigan, to research water contamination in Flint and on the Navajo Nation. During the making of my film I visited numerous Navajo communities living amidst piles of uranium mine waste. Some were so radioactive the geiger counter maxed out. In Flint, I filmed with a mother whose baby had elevated levels of lead from her breast milk. I experienced the crackdown on freedom of speech, when I got arrested for filming a peaceful pipeline protest. I’m now back at the BBC as an investigative TV journalist, where I continue to cover pollution, corporate malfeasance and other rights issues.
