That’s just about a wrap on the insanity that was 2021, but before we move full force ahead to 2022, we wanted to highlight some of the awesome original reporting we did over the past year across our eight newsrooms in Southeast Asia and Hong Kong.
Our top features of the year really speak to the core values that we here at Coconuts stand for (and have stood strong for during the past decade): telling true stories to inform and entertain. Our journalists tackled the tough issues from racial injustice to inequality for members of the LGBTQ+ community and not to mention the pandemic and its impact on everyday citizens’ lives.
Thanks for continuing to read Coconuts and support local, independent journalism. Have a fun (and safe) new year, Coconauts!
