NOTE: THIS PORTFOLIO IS FROM 2016, AND WILL NOT BE UPDATED SO THAT IT CAN BE USED AS A REFERENCE FOR FUTURE JOURNALIST OF THE YEAR CONTESTANTS. VIEW MY UPDATED PORTFOLIO, INCLUDING COLLEGE JOURNALISM AND PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE, HERE.
While attending Davis Senior High School in Davis, California, I was website editor-in-chief for BlueDevilHUB.com, a paid staff writer for The Davis Enterprise — California’s “Best Small Newspaper” — and an intern for local video news website iSeeDavis.com. In July 2015, I graduated from the California Scholastic Press Association‘s 64th annual summer journalism workshop, and returned in 2016 as a counselor. Here, you can view some of the best projects I’ve worked on during my four years in journalism. This portfolio served as my application for the 2016 National Journalist of the Year competition, which I won.
