I recently graduated with a B.A. in Journalism and a deep love for the field. Originally from southeastern Connecticut, I decided to go to IC to learn more about journalistic skills and develop the skills necessary for the field. Despite graduating, I hope to continue learning more about this vast and ever-changing world as I go forward. My current goal is to write for a digital publication focused on different lifestyles and sub-cultures around the world.
The past four years have certainly been busy! I have interned for The Day Publishing Co. in New London, CT, The Hollywood Reporter magazine and Young Hollywood, both in Los Angeles. In addition to my interning work, I’ve also been active on my alma mater’s award-winning newspaper The Ithacan, which I attribute much of my journalistic skills to.
To me being a journalist is learning about how truly different we all are from one another, while still having elements that connect us all. One of my most favorite articles to write was about the culture of hip-hop on campus. As a big fan of the genre and culture, it was amazing to see how we all interpret and experience it in unique ways. Working on that story was the first time I felt such a connection as a journalist.
Even after graduation, I hope to continue learning and building on my skills as a journalist. Over the years I’ve discovered you’re never truly a master of this field. Instead, we’re all lifelong learners sharing stories that the public would not know without us.
