SAN ANTONIO – Editor’s note: Unheard: Stories from the Alamo City is a KSAT feature that gives our viewers the chance to tell their unique stories. The idea is to give a voice to the voiceless. Find more stories like this or share your powerful story on our Unheard page.
Journalists interview and meet new people every day. We learn very quickly that everyone has a story to tell.
While we often tell the stories of public officials, local celebrities, athletes and other well-known figures, we spotlight our everyday neighbors less often.
But that’s changing with Unheard, a new KSAT series that gives people a chance to tell their stories.
Season 1 of Unheard features four people that have overcome obstacles. If you enjoy the series or know someone who would be interested in being featured, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
