What a year this has been! I’m so incredibly blessed and stunned that all this has happened. Let me break it down for you:
1. I was accepted to a 2-week program with World Magazine, called “World Journalism Institute,” taking a course called “Backpack Journalism in a Digital Age.” It’s held in the mountains of Asheville, NC and is supposed to be beautiful. I hope to learn a ton about journalism from a Christian perspective from some of the best Christian journalists in the business.
2. I’ll be in Chicago this summer, interning with the Chicago Tribune! That’s definitely going to be a blast, especially since the internship will consist of me editing and designing in every single section of the Tribune on a rotational basis. I can’t believe that I will have that opportunity. It will allow me to bring a TON of experience and insight back to The Wheaton Record next semester, where I will be …
3. EDITOR of The Wheaton Record!!! It has been a nail-biting past few weeks as I’ve prepared for the interview with the college’s committee for student publications, but it’s all paid off. I’m excited to take charge of the campus newspaper and be able to minister to the campus in this special way.
I can’t believe how well this year has went … and I’m so thankful that this upcoming year is shaping up to be a good one.
