Jennifer Fergesen’s Global Carinderia wins MAM Award



The Commission on Filipinos Overseas recently recognized Jennifer Fergesen (Roots & Wings Bureau Editor, Iceland) with a Migration Advocacy and Media Award in the Best Blog category for her project The Global Carinderia. The MAM Awards are conferred annually by the Commission for Filipinos Overseas, a Philippine governmental agency that promotes the welfare of Filipinos around the world. 


The Global Carinderia is a series of articles that documents the Filipino diaspora through its restaurants. 


From Jennifer:

“I’ve spent the past year traveling around the world to interview restaurateurs in Iceland, Georgia, Austria, the Faroe Islands and Hungary, among others. But I never thought that I'd be noticed by an organization as major as the CFO. The other awardees came from big media organizations, like GMA's Tadhana and ABS-CBN's Kabayani Talks, and brought their own newspaper photographers and TV crews. Only I attended the ceremony alone.  


It's gratifying to know that people care about stories of genuine, hard-working people. I hope this award will help me tell more of them.”
