I completed an internship at The Daily Sentinel in Grand Junction, Colorado. My internship started in January of 2013 and ended in May. I wrote features on everything from entertainment to lifestyle. I also took photos, and shot and edited a video for gjsentinel.com. Before that, I was a reporter for The Criterion, Colorado Mesa University’s student newspaper, from August 2011 to May 2012.
In May 2013, I graduated summa cum laude from Colorado Mesa University in Grand Junction. I received my degree in Mass Communications: Media Strategies and Applications. The curriculum taught me how to write and report for print media, take photos for print, write for public relations and how to use new media technology.
