I honestly didn’t care for this photograph when I first took it, since I barely have time to review them as I’m shooting. I have this dangerous habit of deleting photos that I don’t like as soon as I take them. But after editing and seeing it on a bigger screen, it’s probably one of my favorite photographs that I’ve taken this season.
There are moments when you probably won’t care for a photograph, but give it a second chance, cause you probably missed something the first time you looked at it.

Sheila Coronel is new Columbia Journalism School academic dean
Veteran investigative journalist Sheila Coronel has been named the new Dean of Academic Affairs of Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism in New York. She assumes the post on July 1, 2014.
The announcement was made Tuesday, January 21,according to the website of the prestigious university.
"I am honored and delighted to have this opportunity to serve as academic dean of a great institution," said Coronel, the first Filipino to be appointed to the post.
"We are at a period of uncertainty, as well as tremendous possibility, for both journalism and journalism education. It’s an exciting time to be at a top-tier journalism school," Coronel said. The Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism boasts of preparing journalists via a program that puts an emphasis on "academic rigor, ethics, journalistic inquiry, and professional practice."
Dean Steve Coll lauded Coronel’s contribution as well as her “deep commitment” to investigative reporting, data science, and global journalism, which he said, puts her in an ideal position toward the improvement of the journalism school.
"She has also established herself as a media leader through her service to groups working to advance investigative journalism worldwide and to protect reporters under pressure. I look forward to learning from her and supporting her new leadership role at Columbia," Coll said.
Coronel will take over from Bill Grueskin, a former journalist who worked for 13 years at the Wall Street Journal. The university’s website said Grueskin oversaw the “most dramatic transformation of the journalism school’s curriculum in decades.” Students are given more flexibility in choosing from a menu of traditional journalism classes and new courses in data visualization, algorithms, long-form digital journalism and interactive news design.”
Coronel, co-founder and former director of the Philippine Center for Investigative Journalism, joined the school’s faculty in 2006 as the Director of the Toni Stabile Center for Investigative Journalism and Toni Stabile Professor of Professional Practice in Investigative Journalism.
Recognized globally for her investigative work, she also authored and edited a number of books, including “Pork and other Perks: Corruption and Governance in the Philippines.” She won theRamon Magsaysay Award in 2003, and Columbia University’sPresidential Teaching Award in 2011.
Coronel obtained her undergraduate degree in political science from the University of the Philippines, and went on to complete her master’s degree in political sociology at the London School of Economics.
Columbia Journalism School was founded in 1912 by Joseph Pulitzer, the namesake of the prestigious Pulitzer Prize. It offers Master of Science, Master of Arts, and Doctor of Philosophy degrees.

Filipinos are the second-largest Asian population in the US, and yet there are hardly any Filipino restaurants and we have basically zero representation in the media. I’ve always wondered, “Why is that? Why is it that we kind of just disappear into the background of people’s consciousness, when we are so populous?” We are in every part of industry. We basically run the food service in the military. Filipinos are on every single cruise ship. We’re everywhere, and yet we’re nowhere to be seen. When I talk about performance and taking up space and being in public, I’m always coming with that background in mind. I’m claiming space, claiming attention, and claiming my own humanity and presence in that space at that time.
