Gini Sikes’ stories range from reporting on homeless kids in the U.S. to genital mutilation in Africa for Essence, The Village Voice, Vibe, The New York Times, The Washington Post, Harper's Bazaar, Glamour, Travel and Leisure among others. She visited an immigrant prison to investigate the impact of drug laws on poor women, camped with eco warriors to profile true believers ready to risk life and limb to save the planet and scrubbed animal cages to write about chimps who speak sign language.
