Hi Reddit! I’m Mariana Atencio, a correspondent for NBC News and MSNBC. I’m here to talk about the health crisis in Venezuela, but feel free to AMA.
My job with NBC News and MSNBC has taken me across the U.S. and around the world, covering everything from Hurricane Maria’s aftermath to the 2016 presidential campaign. But the most painful and personal story I’ve ever told is about the death of my father and the ongoing health crisis in my home country of Venezuela: https://www.nbcnews.com/specials/venezuelas-health-crisis. I’m here to discuss that story, but please ask me anything about journalism or my experiences as well!
