Every year, a number of Israel activists with exemplary writing skills and leadership capabilities are selected for the CAMERA Fellowship.
Throughout the school year, CAMERA Fellows are provided with a strong support system, including expert guidance, high-level instruction on Middle East issues, and event planning assistance from CAMERA staff, and international networking opportunities with published writers and activists.
In the coming days, you will have the opportunity to get to know our 2016-2017 CAMERA Fellows.
Jody Miller is a third-year journalism student concentrating in public relations at California Polytechnic State University San Luis Obispo. Jody is a very active member of her CAMERA-supported group, Mustangs United For Israel (MUFI). In addition to her involvement with CAMERA on Campus, Jody will serve as the communications coordinator for the AIPAC cadre at her university.
“As a journalism student, I breathe in the news everyday and constantly see the extensive anti-Israel bias that pervades in the media,” Jody says. She understands the need to promote a positive perspective of Israel not only on campus, but on social media as well. Jody is grateful for the opportunity to be a CAMERA Fellow and the support it provides her. “CAMERA allows me to make the tangible change I have longed for when it comes to anti-Israel sentiment and the opportunity to write articles about dishonest reporting,” she says.
“CAMERA is not only an incredible organization, but a platform for Israel advocacy and I am so excited to be a part of it,” Jody says excitedly. As a Fellow this coming year, Jody hopes to provide her student body with a better understanding of Israel and wants to encourage interested students to learn more about all the amazing things Israel has to offer that international media overlooks.
With the help and support of CAMERA, Jody feels fully prepared to advocate for Israel on campus and hopes to develop her skills in order to eventually have a career in pro-Israel advocacy. Welcome to the CAMERA family, Jody!
