“In my Instagram bio, it says: ‘Don’t gotta be FEARLESS. You just have to FEAR LESS ’” —aspiring broadcast journalist and college freshman Malick Mercier (@classymalick)
The 18-year-old next-gen storyteller from Brooklyn, New York, has always appreciated the news. “I thought everyone loved watching the news, because I was like: ‘How could you not want to know what’s going on in the world?’” For Malick, journalism is about amplifying voices and telling the truth: “The world will always crave knowing ‘the real’ and will need people who are going to be unbiased and just tell us that. It’s so important.” Today, we’re following Malick as he covers #MarchForOurLives in Washington, DC. Check out our Instagram story and follow the hashtag to see more.
