Experience

College

The Daily Tar Heel: Print Journalism

As a staff writer under the University Desk for The Daily Tar Heel, I write a weekly article, published online and selectively in print, about information relevant to UNC-CH. Each article must have a 24-hour turnaround and include three human sources, which requires interviews and diligent reporting. In addition to writing articles, I attend workshops, hosted by the DTH, in order to improve my skills as a writer and reporter.

InterVarsity Christian Fellowship: Photojournalism

As a photographer for InterVarsity Christian Fellowship at UNC-CH, I take pictures of various ministry events, such as large group, which is a weekly occasion during which all involved in IV come together for worship and a talk from the campus pastor. These pictures are sent to the member of the executive team who controls the social media accounts of the ministry at UNC-CH, to be used on these platforms.

Key Club: Public Relations

From 2016 to 2018, I served as the Thales Academy Apex Key Club Public Relations Committee chair. This experience taught me about the inter-workings of public relations, through updating social media pages with important content and keeping members informed, as well as managing all photography for the club chapter.

Live Announcements: Broadcast Journalism

At Thales Academy Apex, I created and hosted a weekly segment on the Student Council live announcements, on which I shared a meaningful quote with the school, broadcast each Friday. This experience taught me basics for broadcast journalism.

Senior Thesis: Can the American Press Be Free?

In my senior year of high school, I wrote a 25 page senior thesis and corresponding presentation, which explored whether the American Press can be truly free. This project allowed me to analyze governmental relations with the media, political bias within the media, and the original philosophies behind a free press.
