My name is Rocío Guenther. I like to tell stories.

Rocío is a bilingual, bicultural journalist whose reporting work on immigration and U.S.-Mexico relations has appeared on DemocracyNOW!, PRI’s the World, Fusion, Buzzfeed, The Rivard Report, Latino Rebels, and Harvard Law School‘s Fair Punishment Project.

She’s works as a freelance journalist, and as a volunteer Spanish translator for National Geographic‘s Out of Eden Walk, spearheaded by Pulitzer-Prize winning journalist Paul Salopek. Salopek is retracing our ancestors’ ancient migration on foot out of Africa and across the globe.

In April 2017, Rocío was invited to be a guest speaker at the renowned International Symposium on Online Journalism (ISOJ) for a panel panel titled “Bridging the Border/Creando Puentes en la Frontera.” While there, she and KRTU journalist Joy Diaz spoke about issues facing journalists reporting on both sides of the U.S.-Mexico border. The event was hosted at the University of Texas in Austin.
