I am a senior dual majoring in journalism and public relations at Eastern Michigan University.
Aside from introduction classes, I have taken Feature Writing, Graphic Communications, Copy Editing, Writing for Electronic Media, Advanced Reporting, History of Journalism, Technical Communication, Social Media, Public Relations and Public Responsibility toward those degrees.
Although I am a full time student, I am employed at the campus newspaper, the Eastern Echo, as a staff writer, reporter and copy editor.
I also have experience as an intern and have the skills necessary for a vigorous work schedule. During my time with Talk of Detroit and Uptown Magazine I had the chance to work directly with high-profile people. I learned first-hand how to get what’s needed for a story from a range of people. I also worked with the magazine and maintained the customers, social sites, writers and events.
I found that my transitions from college to internships to my present position as a copy editor were all growing stages and through those stages I have matured my skills in writing, reporting and editing my one works. There is always room for growth.
Thank you for your time!
