Journalism has been an integral part of my life nearly half a decade, and I have a strong background in the field. This past summer I interned at the Detroit Free Press, writing stories that appeared in print – including one on the front page – and online. I reported on community events, protests, sports, legal disputes, housing, education and the arts in metro Detroit over the course of several months, working closely with established writers and photographers on staff. Additionally, created video summaries of news stories using video editing software and took photos on multiple assignments. I also have experience with web design, particularly on WordPress.
In 2017, I was also named Michigan’s High School Journalist of the Year and received a college scholarship as The Detroit News’ Outstanding Graduate in Journalism.
