I researched, wrote, and scheduled tweets for "Hungry", North by Northwestern’s coverage of the 20th anniversary of a student hunger strike for the Asian American Studies Program at Northwestern University. @NUin1995 tweeted updates in “realtime”, contributing to a package on the strike and its impact.

The Asian American Advisory Board (AAAB) went on hunger strike at @NorthwesternU 20 years ago today. We'll be tweeting it in real-time.

At 11 a.m., 17 students began a hunger strike in order to push @NorthwesternU administration to create an Asian-American studies department.

Inspired by AAAB strike, 17 @Princeton students have staged takeover of offices in protest of lack of curriculum diversity. More to come.

Twelve days after the start of the strike, the last original striker, Charles Chun, has finally dropped out. He has lost 20 pounds.
