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

I am USA Today's stringer in Colombia and a 2019 Pulitzer Center for Crisis Reporting grantee. You can also find my work in BBC, Foreign Policy, NPR, VICE, Public Radio International, C-SPAN, Poynter, Teen Vogue, World Politics Review, The New Republic, ThinkProgress, TruthOut, 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.
