  3. PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti: Erica produced and shot this story in May of 2010 at a beauty salon in a camp for internally displaced people. Millions of Haitians who found themselves homeless after the fatal 2010 earthquake moved into an estimated 1300 spontaneous camps where international aid groups eventually provided tarps, food and water, and medical services. For people like Julie, a beautician who lost everything, there was no time to lose in starting over. In the cramped tent she shared with several family members, Julie reopened her renowned beauty studio much to the delight of regular clients. Some travel from miles away just for a manicure, others from the tent around the corner to get their eyebrows perfectly shaped.

  4. NEW ORLEANS, August, 2010: Erica Berenstein shot, produced and edited this story about the music scene in New Orleans on the fifth anniversary of when Hurricane Katrina devastated this legendary city. She interviewed musicians celebrating jazz great Louis Armstrong's birthday in 2010, and they told her that surviving the storm and rebuilding their city -- and their lives -- has given them something to sing about.
