I’m Megan Janetsky, a Colombia-based independent reporter and photographer covering immigration, women's issues and all things Latin America.

I am a 2019 Pulitzer Center for Crisis Reporting grantee and have worked for  BBC, Al Jazeera, The Atlantic, Foreign Policy, VICE, USA Today, Public Radio International, Poynter, Teen Vogue, The New Republic, ThinkProgress, World Politics Review, Atlas Obscura, Refinery29 and more.

Previously, I reported on the U.S.-Mexico border, in Washington D.C. and in my home in Phoenix, Arizona. My goal as a journalist is to connect the often untold human stories to the politics and policies, and show what's really happening on the ground through written word, photo and video.

Most importantly, I love Gilmore Girls, dogs and over-priced cheese.

I grew up in Arizona and graduated with a degree in journalism from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication in 2018. In all of my work, I comply with the standards set forth by the SPJ Code of Ethics.
