WhereverFamily is proud to announce contributor Rina Baraz Nehdar was recently honored for her work on the website. Congratulations!
Nehdar received honorable mention in the Portrait, People, Online category for “Affordable Family Time in Sayulita” in the 2018 NATJA Travel Media Awards Competition, bestowed annually by the North American Travel Journalists Association. Nehdar’s photo of a little girl eating ice cream, pictured here, earned the accolade. Check out the full article here. Work from September 2017 through August 2018 was eligible.
WhereverFamily launched in September 2017; this award comes in the web publication’s inaugural year.
When Nehdar isn’t wrangling her three boys in the suburbs of Los Angeles, she can be found in downward-facing dog, looking for organic produce or furiously trying to get everything done before everyone gets out of school. Before motherhood, Nehdar was a journalist for both radio and television. Besides whereverfamily.com, she can be found at mommyhasastory.com and lafamilytravel.com.
