I am in my last semester at Bloomsburg University where I will be graduating with a Mass Communications degree/concentration Journalism and I am actively seeking employment in the Mass Media/Journalism field.
As an experienced writer I will be a valuable asset to your news outlet. My portfolio of news, human interest and features pieces exemplify my growth as a journalist and my ability to take criticism and apply it. I am a content creator and am capable of forming my own story ideas for both individual works as well as team-based articles, for example editorials.
With my concentration in Journalism, I have held multiple internships with print news publications, working as a reporting intern with Daily Local News and My Forsyth Magazine. I am also currently Editor-In-Chief of The Voice, my campus’ newspaper. I have been writing for The Voice since I first arrived at Bloomsburg and have held a few editor positions including Managing Editor and Editor of Opinions and Editorial.
During my time with The Voice I won a Columbia Scholastic Press Association Gold Circle Award; first place for personal opinion: off campus issues.
Through my internships and editor experience with The Voice I have become research savvy and often find I have become an expert in a wide array of topics. From whales to the complex history of Catalonia I have produced stories full of vetted facts and have learned how to turn research into interesting narratives for readers to enjoy.
I studied abroad in Germany the summer between my sophomore and junior years. Since then I have been an International Peer Mentor for the university; helping students from all over the world make a home in Bloomsburg. I believe this has given me a global perspective that would be valuable for a position in the Mass Communications field.
I am a fast learner who thrives in an exciting and global workplace. While I believe I have the skills necessary to succeed in a news room I am always open to conversations about my professional development and how I can improve.
Please feel free to contact me if you believe I would fit well into your company.
