It All Started on 9/11


ICYMI – In a New York Times profile, CNN foreign correspondent and Yale University graduate Clarissa Ward looks back at her recent reporting on the fall of Afghanistan and her senior year(2001) epiphany on September 11 that led her to a career in journalism.

“It sounds presumptuous, but I knew I had to go to the front lines, to hear the stories of people who lived there and tell them to the people back home.”

At Yale, Ward’s major was comparative literature.
