Fighting Poverty with Passion

Field Report: Social Media Liaison

Carnival is right around the corner here at Tulane. Within two weeks, New Orleans will be alive at all times of the day and night. This is beyond exciting to me as I watch with glee people flowing into the city. It makes for great social media fodder. However, to truly examine New Orleans is to acknowledge its strengths and weaknesses. Below is part of an attempt of mine to capture the city’s strengths and weaknesses. Look back for more photographs later on in the season.

Strangely, it reminds me of home.
