Hello, my name is Pakou Lee.

I am a multimedia journalist from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. My interest in journalism derived from watching television. Television was my window view to the world growing up as my parents never had the money to go on family vacations or exciting new places. I watched everything from cartoons, talk shows, soap operas to reality shows & then one day 9/11 happened & everything changed. I tuned into anything that covered news such as BBC Worldnews, Frontline & PBS Newshour, to name a few over those cartoons and melodrama shows. The more I indulged in keeping up with the world, the more I wanted to become a part of the experience up close and personal. My ultimate goal as a journalist is to give people a voice and find stories that matters to them, including you.
