We’re happy to say that our roster of freelancers keeps expanding.

As we said in the post this July where we introduced you to our then-newest freelancers and columnists, it is our intention deepen our ability to offer unparalleled coverage of the Philadelphia region’s social impact doings and strengthen our commitment to community- and resource-building.

So we are pleased to say that Hannah Chinn and Irene Contreras have joined our dynamic and committed corps of freelancers.

Chinn is a a Portland native, a Philly transplant, and a lover of printed ephemera. She graduated from Bryn Mawr College in 2019, and has worked as an extern at the New York Times, a digital media intern at NBC 10, a news features intern at Philadelphia Media Network (, Inquirer and Daily News), and a news intern at Willamette Week.

Contreras is a journalist with a background in corporate communications, public relations, and social media in multicultural environments. She was born and raised in Caracas, Venezuela, and worked as a news producer for RCTV and as an audiovisual producer at Canal i. She moved to Philadelphia  five years ago, and has since worked in communications at the Greater Philadelphia Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and at the City of Philadelphia for Philly Counts.

Look for Chinn’s and Contreras’ first stories at Generocity to appear in September.
