As a staff writer for a student produced magazine for six months, I investigated a private prison in Montana and interviewed a USFS survivor of sexual assault about systemic sexual assault and harassment in the government organization.

My prison investigation led me to interview 22 past and current inmates of the prison over letters and phone. I found these sources through numerous avenues including Facebook and every organization in contact with prisoners in Montana I could think of.

I interviewed over 40 people for the article and questioned the government and corporate agencies involved. I also created information requests using open records laws in Montana.
