Newhouse Student News Team

I began working for the Student News Team during the beginning of my sophomore year at Syracuse University. The Team is responsible for profiling events, speakers and individuals on campus. All articles and photographs contributed go onto the official Newhouse website, which is accessed by professors, students, alumni and prospective students. Some of the skills I've learned from being a part of the Team include learning how to take rapid yet efficient notes during fast-paced speaker series and events, photographing individuals in action, and conducting in-depth profile interviews.

This is the first profile I wrote as part of the Newhouse School's international student series. I pitched the series to my editor because, as an international student myself, I felt it was important to place a spotlight on their lives, struggles and accomplishments.

When I found out David Fahrenthold was coming to Newhouse, I immediately signed up to write and photograph his talk. He is a journalist I greatly admire, and being able to speak with after the event was a great opportunity. This is my profile on his talk.
